According to urban myth, formerly known as the US Constitution, only a natural born citizen can be President i.e. one born on US soil of parents both of whom are US citizens.
Unfortunately, the entire American political leadership and the main stream media may only have read the Cliffs Notes version of “Dreams from My Father”, which must have omitted the fact that Barack Obama’s father was born in Kenya and, at the time of Barack’s birth, was a British subject.
At some point in time, when our fearless leaders in Congress and our non-partisan press emerge from their self-induced anesthesia, they might experience a Casablanca moment, “shocked, shocked” that all these years they have been victims of such a clever scam.
One can only hope that we can, in some way, capture the energy of their hand-wringing as a replacement for the domestic fossil fuel reserves we no longer exploit.
The only evidence offered by Obama to suggest that he is a natural-born citizen was a certification of live birth (COLB). That document, which has not been verified by the state of Hawaii and may even be a forgery, is, in any case, not considered as acceptable proof of birth for either a passport or a driver’s license, never-mind the Presidency. It can be used, however, when presented in person, as a confirmation that you have a pulse.
There would certainly be serious consequences regarding any revelation that we have an illegal President, which would require urgent deliberate action by our political leadership. If past behavior is any indicator, we can fully expect the Congress to adjourn immediately and ensconce themselves in the Motel-No-Tell somewhere in the New Jersey Pine Barrens.
If it is true that Obama is a usurper or even if there are reasonable suspicions, why has his eligibility and background not been properly investigated and publicly exposed?
Quite simply, investigations might lead to substantiation of complicity or acquiescence by the political establishment and the main stream media in the most serious fraud ever perpetrated on the American people. Public reaction would be swift and unforgiving – think of a Tea Party on steroids.
Both the Democrats and Republicans are trying to bury the allegations in order to focus on winning the 2012 elections using their traditional party organizations and campaign strategies. Neither would welcome any rogue platforms or candidates that might upset the political status quo – that is, business as usual, retaining their coveted power and privilege.
Frederick Douglass said “power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and never will.”
The situation will only change when the pressure applied on elected officials by the American people cuts through the smokescreen generated by the main stream media and any political elites, who might have conspired or assented to hiding the truth and potentially subverting our Constitution.
In such a scenario, Barack Obama cannot resign or be impeached because he was never really the President.
It might be the first time in American history that a President would be issued an eviction notice. As an added precaution, I would turn off the water and electricity in the White House; change the locks and audit the silverware and china cabinets.
No doubt, replacement of a President in this manner would traumatize the nation, but we can handle the truth. The republic would survive and be stronger from the experience, although we may have to pass a supplementary spending bill to hire 300 million grief counselors.
Under such circumstances and in the spirit of forgiveness and national reconciliation, I would recommend that Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi not be indicted, but forced to be contestants on “Dancing with the Stars”. That would be punishment enough, both for them and us.
