Is Obama’s candidacy constitutional? Secrecy over birth certificate, demand for ‘natural-born’ citizenship cited

Bloggers are raising questions about Illinois Sen. Barack Obama’s qualifications to be U.S. president, because of the secrecy over his birth certificate and the requirement presidents be “natural-born” U.S. citizens.

Jim Geraghty, reporting on the Campaign Spot, cited the “unlikely” but still circulating rumor that Obama was born not within the United States, but elsewhere, possibly Kenya.

Geraghty defined the concerns most clearly, stating: “If Obama were born outside the United States, one could argue that he would not meet the legal definition of natural-born citizen … because U.S. law at the time of his birth required his natural-born parent (his mother) to have resided in the United States for ’10 years, at least [f]ive of which had to be after the age of 16.'”

He then points out Ann Dunham, Obama’s mother, was 18 when Obama was born “so she wouldn’t have met the requirement of five years after the age of 16.”

Geraghty continues: ” (Interestingly, apparently there isn’t much paperwork on Obama’s parents’ marriage. ‘Obama: From Promise to Power,’ page. 27: ‘Obama later confessed that he never searched for the government documents on the marriage, although Madelyn (Obama’s maternal grandmother) insisted they were legally married.’ Also note that Obama’s father apparently was not legally divorced from his first wife back in Kenya at the time, a point of contention that ultimately led to their separation.)”

Interesting…BUT needs to be “fleshed out”. If true and if the REAL certificate is found and it is found to be true (as in NOT a natural born citizen, I shoulda added)…Someone is in, deep shit. The Constitution would be ass over heels…Obama supporters would make sure of that.

Obama’s Answer on the Johnson Conundrum…Hussein Obama…No “Content Of Character”.


ABC News’ Sunlen Miller today asked Sen. Barack Obama, D-Illinois, how he could “rail against Countrywide Financial Corp as an example of insiders and today’s economy while your VP search is headed by someone who got questionable loans from Countrywide?” (This is an issue we wrote about earlier today.)

“And in addition,” Miller continued, “another person on that same VP search team – Eric Holder — has also been involved in the Marc Rich scandal.”

“Well, look,” Obama said, “the, the, I mean – first of all I am not vetting my VP search committee for their mortgages, so you’re gong to have to direct —

“But shouldn’t you?” asked Miller.

“Well, no,” Obama said. “It becomes sort of a, um, I mean, this is a game that can be played – everybody, you know, who is tangentially related to our campaign, I think, is going to have a whole host of relationships — I would have to hire the vetter to vet the vetters. I mean, at some point, you know, we just asked people to do their assignments.

“Jim Johnson has a very discrete task,” Obama continued, “as does Eric Holder, and that is simply to gather up information about potential vice presidential candidates. They are performing that job well, it’s a volunteer, unpaid position. And they are giving me information and I will then exercise judgment in terms of who I want to select as a vice presidential candidate.

More on that Obama-Lieberman Talk
June 10, 2008 10:15 AM

We reported last week that the private talk. Sen. Barack Obama, D-Illinois, was seen having with Sen. Joe Lieberman, Ind.-Conn., was somewhat intense, dealing with how far Lieberman, who caucuses with the Democrats in the Senate, is willing to go in his advocacy for Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz.

Newsweek fleshes out another detail, that according to an Obama campaign aide, “Obama told Lieberman he was surprised by Lieberman’s personal attacks and his half-hearted denials of the false rumors that Obama is a Muslim.” The aide characterized Lieberman as “strangely muted” in response.

A Lieberman aide tells ABC News that “rather than being ‘strangely muted’ as the Obama staffer claimed – Lieberman responded to Obama that he always told anyone who raised this rumor that Obama is a Christian.”

The Lieberman aide refers to a February story in the New York Observer in which Lieberman says of the Muslim rumor, “The one time that I confronted it, I was campaigning in Florida for Senator McCain. I spoke to a large group and a man stood up and asked me about it, or he referenced it. And I said, of course, that I know Senator Obama pretty well. Obviously one’s religion is a matter of choice. Everything I knew said he was Christian. So, I don’t know how widespread it is but that’s the one time I confronted it. And of course the most important thing is that Senator Obama said it’s just not true.”

I don’t know that — from Obama’s point of view — Lieberman saying, “Obviously one’s religion is a matter of choice. Everything I knew said he was a Christian” constitutes the kind of denial of the rumor that Obama would hope to have. (Shades of Sen. Hillary Clinton’s assertion that Obama isn’t Muslim “as far as I know.”)

Either way the Lieberman team sees this whole controversy as unseemly.

“If the Obama campaign thinks they are going to intimidate Joe Lieberman with these sleazy tactics then they are sorely mistaken,” the Lieberman aide says.

Dodd: Government Can Mandate What Profit is ‘Fair’ for Business

Vladimir Dodd, Communist, Connecticut/Breitbart TV

“In fact it’s been done that way in the past and particularly when you’re trying to get some relief for people out here when the economy is in a tailspin. We’re about to go into a recession here. This is really causing a tremendous dislocation, not only here, but around the world.”

Worst Office Freak Out Ever?

Fox News

Think your day at the office is going badly? It’s probably not as bad as the guy in this viral video making the rounds on the Internet.

The nearly 3-minute-long video, purportedly taken by an office security camera on May 23, shows a white-collar worker who loses it, trashing his office one cubicle at a time.

The video is set to the Verve’s song “Bittersweet Symphony” and shows the man hurling computer monitors, tossing papers, ripping down cubicle walls and taking what appears to be a sledgehammer to the office printer.

A second video, taken with a cell phone, shows security officials using a Taser to subdue the worker. There’s sound on the second video, with the workers speaking what sounds like Russian.

Internet watchdog sites like have speculated that the video may be fake, citing co-workers who linger, rather than flee the scene, and the existence of the second-angle video.

Regardless, the videos can make even the most unbearable office spaces seem tame in comparison.

 Second angle video seems damn real, to me…Poor bastard…FREAKED.  LOST IT. Fucking Bananas     🙂

Since I can no longer comment at Tim’s Old Place…and must get by The Soup Nazi at Tim’s New Place

Comment # 84 was brought to my attention….So after changing what I really said, I responded to this:

Carcinogenic Blair is stuck in an outdated debate on climate change, while issues of energy supply are usurping climate change as the major preoccupation in most online media, which can easily be found outside of the Murdoch circus. Get a real job Blair before your cancer goes terminal. (We can only hope).

Dean of Mt Vic (Reply)

What I said, after a revision or two was:

Tim Blair will be around to piss urinate and shitdefecate on your grave…fuckhead you vile being you.

OH Dean….should you want…you could always come here…and get your ass kicked…and your clock fucking cleaned…DUDE!

A View Of Melbourne

I was in a leisurely mood, and felt like driving somewhere a bit different.

So I drove to the Eastern Suburbs of Melbourne, and drove up Mt Dandenong. I forgot how many tight and dangerous turns there is along that road, but it’s fun to drive!

When I got up to SkyHigh, I took a photo of the view. And here it is for you:

On the horizon, you can actually see Melbourne CBD, and the white area in the foreground is an industrial area with a bunch of factories in it. The green area in the foreground is trees.

Mainstream Media Picking on Bloggers… Again

Offensive comments by Bill Clinton recorded by a blogger – have inspired elite journalists to attack the presumably illegitimate amateurs encroaching on their turf.

I believe as President Harry S. Truman was to have said: If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen.

Record gas price to drive up UK energy bills…Gosh these are smart people, huh?

This blog and (some of) its readers…No NOT Tizona, but…

I have noticed a persistent complaint by some readers posting comments on my blog entries which I think requires some comment and clarification. Referring to my last entry on Barack Obama, they appear to find it objectionable that I singled out his attitude towards Israel for criticism. They seem to believe that it is wrong for me to write about Israel as often as I do, not least because they think that, since I am writing on the Spectator website, I have some kind of duty not to write about it so much. Some of these readers, as is painfully obvious from their comments, simply have a big problem with Jews – at least, Jews who identify with and defend the Jewish people. But others, whose instincts may be rather more decent, seem to be labouring under one or two misapprehensions. So let me make a number of things clear.

First, this is my personal blog and it represents my own views and interests and mine alone. The Spectator very kindly hosts it on its website, thus choosing to give me this splendid platform on which to air my views — for which I am very grateful. Nevertheless, the content of my blog is wholly independent of the Spectator, and it does not try to replicate the magazine’s standpoint or its range of interests. People read my blog because they are interested in what I have to say. If they are not interested, they need not read it. Blogs hosted by mainstream media outlets are a relatively new phenomenon and so I can understand why some people are confused; but that’s how it works.

Second, my blog does cover a range of issues. However, one of the reasons I started it some years ago was very specifically to provide an alternative voice and an antidote to the stranglehold of left-wing group-think in the mainstream media, the domination of the msm by anti-American, anti-western and anti-Israel propaganda, and the resulting collapse of reason and (literally) murderous anti-Israel and anti-Jewish prejudice that has so twisted public discourse in Britain and western society.

Third, as far as Obama is concerned I have indeed previously written about him in a more general context. I was one of the first to identify, for example, concerns over his association with Pastor Wright and his 20-year membership of a black power church which preaches black racism against white people, as well as identifying additional concerns over his apparently troubling connection to the Islamist-endorsing, anti-democratic political opposition in Kenya.

Fourth, the suggestion that it is somehow illegitimate for a Jew to write in defence of Israel is in itself highly unsavoury. The implication is that this proves that Jews are only concerned with their own interests and wrench everything into that template. Exactly the same charge was levelled in the 1930s against those Jews who (vainly) tried to wake the world up to the dangers of Nazism. Unfortunately, this vile prejudice is not confined to a few cranks but is now widespread, mainstream and considered an acceptable viewpoint. It is precisely this poison that this blog seeks to expose and to combat.

Fifth, the reason why Israel figures so heavily in any discussion about the predicaments of our era is that Israel is the defining moral issue of our time. It is Israel, and the century-old existential onslaught against the Jewish people in its ancient homeland, which stands at the very centre of the titanic fight by truth against lies, fact against propaganda, freedom against totalitarianism, liberty against slavery, justice against injustice and reason against irrationality in which the entire free world is currently engaged. Israel is the quintessential canary in the mine. It is the front-line in the defence of the free world. If it goes down, the rest of us will go down. Those who are on the wrong side of the Israel issue are on the wrong side in the great struggle for civilisation against barbarism. That is why I return to it again and again.

I hope this makes things clearer.

Dead Voters Still Showing Up on Election Records, Puzzling Officials


Jane Drury voted last year in an election in Stonington, Conn. The only problem is, she died eight years ago.

Her daughter, Jane Gumpel, thought someone must have goofed.

“I was surprised because this is not possible,” she said.

But it did happen. The town clerk’s record clearly shows Drury’s vote, marked by a horizontal line poll workers put next to her name. And it turns out Drury isn’t the only voter who apparently cast a ballot from the grave.

The issue of dead voters showing up on ballot records continues to be a problem for election administrators across the country.

“I couldn’t imagine because I didn’t think she voted — it was an impossible situation to me,” she said.

Officials say when it comes to dead voters, most of the problems are simply mistakes, not political corruption. But they admit that as long as the deceased remain registered to vote, the potential for fraud is alive and well.
