For the past six months, retired Army Colonel Lawrence Sellin has been writing columns here at Canada Free Press (CFP), averaging around three per week. His columns have been studiously focused on the subject of Barack Obama’s eligibility to serve as President of the United States.
Colonel Sellin’s objective seemingly has been to provide enough factual information on the subject for public discussion and opinion, sprinkled with many personal conclusions to determine Obama’s IN-eligibility to serve in that office.
Sellin’s columns in CFP are not alone in this regard with several other columnists, myself included, for the past few years, but his columns have been gathering an abundance of comments and questions from CFP readers which mainly result in posing the question, “What can we do about it?”
Below are write-in responses to Sellin’s columns as provided by readers to CFP. The names have been omitted but are available online at the CFP website in the ‘Comments’ section of Sellin’s column:
“I am under the impression only Congress can start impeachment proceedings against president for any reason. So how now do we (the citizens) hold our member of Congress to their oath to the constitution to pursue this actively and immediately. Facts are facts. They choose not to pursue this how do we hold them accountable?”
“The question of the day is: WHAT, oh WHAT can we do to the rid the country of this illegitimate fool that all the fools in Congress seem to be ignorant of??”
“ALL MEMBERS OF CONGRESS HAVE VIOLATED THEIR OATHS OF OFFICE. They are all
complicit and guilty as hell in perpetrating this treasonous hoax. Nothing will be done about this mess until we remove from office ALL the corrupt, career politicians who are now running both major parties and the Legislative Branch.”
“I just don’t understand why no one has done anything about him. Isn’t there a good man, or woman, out there anywhere that would have the ‘balls’ to do what is right. If I had the money and prestige, I would do it! Why don’t you do something? I am so tired of listening to this fake president lie with every word he speaks. And so tired of no one doing anything about it!”
“Yes, of course all members of Congress and the Senate have violated their oaths of office. Everyone knows Obama is not eligible. All the media people know this. The question is why are people going along with this hoax?”
“Who is going to uncover this? Who is going to bring it to justice? Is someone actually doing something about it?”
“Ron Paul’s current stand on government has some decent opinions, however, he was a member of the Congress during Obama’s run-up to the campaign, his campaign and his nomination, his election, his swearing-in and his first 2 and 1/2 years in office - and like all other members of the Congress Ron Paul did not publicly question Obama’s credentials.”
As you can see, the questions cover a wide area of uncertainty in the public’s collective minds regarding who, what, where, and when will anything be done to provide the final determination of Obama’s eligibility or even who will officially make the decision as to his guilt or innocence of the presumed charge of ineligibility to hold the office of POTUS.
Are our legislators in Congress guilty of having violated their Oaths of Office that were administered to each and every elected member of Congress and have they in fact participated in a vast cover-up of widely presumed false and/or forged certificates of Obama’s birth showing U. S. citizenship? Doing nothing is the same as participating.
If a member of Congress does not file or call for impeachment proceedings against the presumed usurper of the office of the president, who indeed will, in fact, take some official action involving a court trial or related actions for an investigation as to his guilt?
Should this action, if not initiated by a member of Congress, be brought to public trial by a high authority in a government judiciary position such as the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court? Several individual lawyers’ actions were brought before various levels of judicial courts only to have them dismissed by judges on questionable (by average lay persons) grounds, ringing of political favoritism.
It seems that this area of the enigma has as many questions as the entire problem.
Earlier in this month of September 2011, at the request of the Tea Party Patriots, widely known and celebrated Maricopa County Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio announced the formation of a group of lawmakers, law enforcement personnel and sheriffs, a mix of retired and still actively employed that would investigate the question of Barack Obama’s claims of being a natural born citizen of the United States and more specifically, the authenticity of Obama’s offered certificate of birth.
It is quite apparent that many, many people in many, many different proximities to the person in question have many, many reasons to either not pursue an official answer or to go full speed ahead in getting a determination of guilt or innocence of the principal subject and his, at the moment, highly questionable document alleging true birth info and a very large number of just plain public American citizens merely want some kind of closure to a very troublesome problem for our country.
Let’s git ‘r dun.
