OBAMA WILL RESIGN & FOR GOOD REASON
By Alan Caruba
It is now widely acknowledged that the mainstream media ran interference for him, ignoring or disparaging those who questioned his eligibility. After two and a half years in office, however, his arrogance and incompetence is so manifest that even they can no longer cover for him.
Obama has single handedly generated a mass political movement called the Tea Party and election results for Governors and members of Congress have put opposition candidates into office.
On March 31, 1968, then-President Lyndon B. Johnson announced that he would not run for reelection, responding to the massive opposition to the war in Vietnam. On August 9, 1974, Richard M. Nixon announced his resignation in the wake of the Watergate scandal to avoid impeachment.
I predict that Barack Hussein Obama will resign before the end of his first term. He may well do so prior to the September, 2012, Democratic Party National Convention.
Obama was never eligible to run for the office. In his book, Where’s the Birth Certificate? The Case That Barack Obama Is Not Eligible to Be President, Dr. Jerome R. Corsi, Ph.D. in Political Science (Harvard University, 1972), devotes 387 pages, complete with appendices and endnotes, to irrefutably make that case.
Anyone who reads Article II, Section 1, of the U.S. Constitution, however, can make that case in less than a minute. Only a “natural born” individual both of whose parents were American citizens can be President of the U.S.A. Obama’s father was a citizen of Kenya. There is no dispute regarding what the Founders meant when they said “natural born.” Further clouding Obama’s eligibility is the time he spent in his youth in Indonesia as the adopted son of that nation’s nationality.
Corsi’s book explores all the other mysteries, including a highly suspicious Social Security number, passports, and other documentation that any candidate for office would normally submit to public disclosure. A massive cover up that includes the national press corps, the Democratic Party, Congress and even the U.S. courts, permitted Obama to gain and hold the Office of President.
Indeed, Corsi’s book is not the first to reveal the deceptions. At least three other books have meticulously examined the issue. They include The Manchurian President by Aaron Klein with Brenda J. Elliot, The Blueprint: Obama’s Plan to Subvert the Constitution and Build an Imperial Presidency by Ken Blackwell and Ken Klukowski, and The Post-American Presidency by Pamela Geller with Robert Spencer. Corsi, however, has the benefit of timing. As the nation enters the period following Obama’s announcement he is running for reelection and during the process of selecting a Republican opponent, the issue of his eligibility is gathering momentum.
The polling data is all against him. The failure of his policies, combined with the massive increase in the national debt, rising unemployment, the implosion of the housing market, and a growing perception of his incompetence are coalescing to give weight to the demand that he end his candidacy or resign.
“History has not been kind to U.S. Presidents that have attempted to hide behind a lie,” says Corsi.
When republics begin to ignore their founding documents, they are literally committing suicide and, in Obama’s case, it is an assisted suicide.
The recognized definition of a “natural born citizen,” a requirement to be President, does not require much more than common sense. In a May, 2011, article published by Canada Free Press, Lawrence B. Solum, the John E. Cribbett Professor of Law at the University of Illinois College of Law, is quoted as having written in September, 2008, “Anyone born on American soil whose parents are citizens of the United States is a natural born citizen.”
Ironically, in 2008, his political opponent, U.S. Senator John McCain, both of whose parents were Americans when he was born in the Panama Canal Zone, was the subject of a Senate Resolution confirming his eligibility to run. The then-Democratic controlled Senate took up no such action regarding Obama. If they had, they would have had to hold a convention to pick a new candidate!
Lawrence Sellin, the author of the Canada Free Press article cited above, warned:
“If the constitutional crisis is not soon addressed, the present political polarization will inevitably lead to political fragmentation. Erosion of the Constitution will inevitably lead to the collapse of the rule of law.”
There is no documentation to support the myths about his life that Obama has carefully devised. Indeed, the President has reportedly spent millions to deny public access to his birth certificate and all other records.
If he resigns, he may be able to assert the legitimacy of every piece of legislation, every executive order, signed into law, but, if he is found to have been ineligible, every one of them would become null and void.
The nation can be put right again as a Constitutional Republic. Obama has led an unlawful regime. America has been drunk on statism and socialism since the 1930s. It’s time to sober up.
