Current presidential eligibility scandal

On Eligibility, It’s Up to the States

I know that our criminal justice system is one of the best on the planet; however, I also know that, occasionally, folks get sentenced to hard time for crimes they never committed.  Even less frequently, subsequent evidence turns out to show that a person was actually innocent, and was wrongly imprisoned.  One can only imagine the daily mental angst such a person must endure, serving a criminal sentence while knowing that knowledge of the truth by those who have power over his freedom would have prevented such an injustice.  Each day likely begins with the thought, “Maybe today is the day when someone, somewhere, will discover the truth and do something about it.”  Obviously, hope is one of the few things such a person would have left.


Alternatively, there are likely far more instances of criminals who end up never experiencing the consequences for their deeds, because they have not been linked to the crimes they have committed.  The common denominator in both scenarios is the lack of knowledge and/or understanding of the truth.

In the current presidential eligibility scandal, however, we have not been faced with the lack of knowledge or understanding by those in our federal government who have the power to act upon the assault against our Constitution, but, rather, the unwillingness to act upon the truth that exists.  Many Americans became aware, during the 2008 presidential campaign, that Barack Obama had problems with his Article II constitutional qualifications, and, accordingly, many of us across the country did everything we knew to do to alert the members of the Electoral College, Congress, state governors, and even some military officials.  Letters, emails, faxes, and telephone calls barraged their offices, and some chose to visit those officials personally.  However, in the history of our country, I doubt there has ever been the level of stonewalling by our elected officials that we witnessed during that time.

How do we know we were being stonewalled?  It was very easily ascertained when we started comparing the responses we received from those elected officials (or, at least the ones who bothered to respond at all), and we found that all of them contained assertions about Barack Obama being born in Hawaii, which, they claimed, made him a natural born citizen, and therefore, he was eligible to be president.  Once it was discovered that Congressional Research Service (CRS) Legislative Attorney Jack Maskell had provided Congress with a biased memo filled with legal disinformation, we knew that our elected officials had actually spent none of their own time nor resources to verify Barack Obama’s credentials, nor the facts that proved his ineligibility.  They simply took cover behind Maskell’s myths.  (Maskell’s memoranda can be viewed here  and here .

For more than two years since that election, the people have continued to ask the question, and when those inquiries haven’t been ignored outright, the answers given are still reflective of Maskell’s mendacity.  That template should give us a pretty good indication of how effective continuing to rely on members of our federal government to do anything about the biggest fraud ever perpetrated upon our country will be.  Obviously, they will continue not to hear the people, and are demonstrating that the political class has no accountability to those who put them into office.

For much of our American history, we had a safety net that existed to deal with that political class when its actions and its oaths became divergent—the press.  What would Watergate have been without Woodward and Bernstein?  Our press used to pride itself on being our watchdog—that assiduous, obstinate handful of reporters who knew, and revered, the service they provided our free nation.  However, as we have painfully become aware, that press no longer exists in this country, as it has grafted itself onto the far left corner of that political class.  To protect their real estate in that corner, they have refused to approach this issue honestly, and have, rather, responded to the citizens of this country with ridicule and derision.

That’s not to say that we don’t have genuine reporters who have diligently worked to uncover and expose the crimes that have been committed, but their limited platforms haven’t allowed them to overcome the blanket coverage of the national media that simply relegates those faithful journalists to the same group whom they mock and deceptively misrepresent.

So, what are we to do?  Are we simply to give in to this corrupt political machine that appears to be outside our ability to hold accountable?  Certainly not!  We, as a country, cannot afford to take the milquetoast approach that many “moderates” suggest—that we simply need to defeat Obama at the polls.  And, there are two predominant reasons why we cannot do that.  First, if Barack Obama is allowed to run in 2012, it is very possible he could win, and we cannot take that chance.  And, second, apart from his being removed from office because of his ineligibility, everything he has done to destroy our country will stand—and his “presidency” will serve as precedent for any future non-natural born Citizen to thwart the Constitution and usurp the office.

We must fortify our efforts to exercise our 10th Amendment rights, and utilize our state and local officials to accomplish what our federal government willfully, and unconstitutionally,  refuses to do.  Because of the massive Orwellian efforts that liberals have expended in twisting what our Founding Fathers required in the Article II “natural born Citizen” requirement of the Constitution (much of that work being done through an online network of Obama operatives who congregate at the website called “The Fogbow”), we need now, more than ever, to advance the truth from the bottom up, as it were.

While we must never abdicate the true definition of “natural born Citizen” (born in the country of citizen parents), we must also recognize the difficult road it will be to have this usurper removed from office on that basis.  I believe the key to unraveling the crimes that have been committed lies in the forged long form birth certificate that the White House released on April 27, 2011.  It has been proven, irrefutably, to be a forgery, and forgery of a government document of identification is felony fraud.

Accordingly, I have personally begun that quest in my own state.  Following is a letter I sent via USPS certified mail—return receipt:

May 31, 2011

Randy Krantz
Commonwealth’s Attorney
123 East Main Street, Suite 302
Bedford, VA 24523

in re: Misprision of Felony

Dear Mr. Krantz:

I am an American citizen who resides in the Commonwealth of Virginia within the county of Bedford.  Pursuant to Title 18 U.S.C. Chapter 1, § 4 (“Whoever, having knowledge of the actual commission of a felony cognizable by a court of the United States, conceals and does not as soon as possible make known the same to some judge or other person in civil or military authority under the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.”), I believe I am compelled by law to make known to you that I witnessed the commission of felonious fraud.

On April 27, 2011 Barack Obama released an image that he claimed was his long form birth certificate from the state of Hawaii.  After more than two years of claiming that nothing was available but a Hawaiian abstract (a Certification of Live Birth that was posted on the Internet and was proven to be a forgery), Barack Obama publicly stated, “As many of you have been briefed, we provided additional information today about the site of my birth.”  His usage of the pronoun “we” implies his personal involvement in what was released.

Following this letter, I will provide you a detailed analysis that proves, irrefutably, that what Barack Obama released was, indeed, a forged computer-generated image, which makes the release of the image a felony (forgery of a government document used for identification is a felony).

Because of Title 18 U.S.C. Chapter 1, § 4, I believe I have no other choice but to report this fraudulent activity, and because of the duties incumbent upon your position, I believe you have little choice but to personally investigate this crime, or refer the crime to a superior for its investigation. 

I would appreciate being apprised of the progress of that investigation, as I care deeply about my country, and I highly object to anyone who commits willful fraud remaining in elected office, as I assume you do as well.  As I am not the only one upon whom this fraud was perpetrated, I will be reporting the findings of your expected thorough investigation with others across our commonwealth and the country who also witnessed the commission of the fraud.

I am filing this report with the following officials:

Commonwealth’s Attorney Randy Krantz
Attorney General of Virginia Kenneth Cuccinelli, II
Secretary of the Commonwealth Janet Polarek
Virginia State Delegate Lacey Putney
Virginia State Senator Steve Newman
Governor of Virginia Bob McDonnell
US Representative Bob Goodlatte
US Senator Jim Webb
US Senator Mark Warner

If you would like a corroborating source of evidence, I urge you to read the book Where’s the Birth Certificate? by Jerome Corsi, Ph.D.  Additionally, numerous other sources are available online.  I would suggest the following starting points:

World Net Daily
Birther Report
The Obama File

In light of the overwhelming credible evidence I have provided, I am confident that your response will not be an immediately dismissive one, and neither will you rely on the deceptive spins and scripted misinformation that a growing number of citizens of our country have received from so many elected officials.

I look forward to your reply.

Kindest regards,

Dean C. Haskins

As of today, I have received return receipts from all nine officials, so I know they are in possession of my letter.  While I don’t yet know what their responses will be, I believe that, if they are flooded with this information from their constituents, it will not be as easy to ignore as our elected federal officials have done.  Additionally, there would be an added perk for governors and attorneys general in states that are litigating against Obama’s horrendous health care legislation.  Since Obama’s being removed due to ineligibility to hold the office would unquestionably nullify any bills he has signed into law, Obamacare would be reversed, and the states’ legal expenses to litigate the matter would suddenly disappear.

Please note, I am, in no way, suggesting that we simply abandon our efforts with federal officials (especially Dr. Jerome Corsi’s request for our contacting officials within the FBI), but, I believe we need to step up, massively, our communications with our local and state officials, and urge them all to begin independent state investigations into the crimes that have been committed.  I welcome the use of any parts of the letter I wrote as a template for your own particular state.  I would also appreciate being informed of the responses you receive after sending such a letter (.(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)).  The more information we have, the greater the pressure we can apply on all of our elected officials.

And so, like one who has been falsely imprisoned, I shall awake each day with the thought that, “Maybe today is the day when someone, somewhere, will discover the truth and do something about it.”  I have not yet lost hope that the truth will eventually prevail; however, we the people are directly responsible for that truth to be heard.
