Fox News Channel host Glenn Beck says people should be focusing on the goals President Obama is pursuing and the way he is reaching them instead of questioning his eligibility to be president.
“I have to tell you, the – I mean, first of all, the birther thing, what are you going to do. Even if it was true, what, are you going to take him out of office?” he said today on his radio show. “You can’t do that.”
Beck’s comments came during a segment when columnist Michelle Malkin was discussing the dangers of the dozens of “czars” appointed by Obama to run various projects.
Beck calls the “czars” “truly frightening.”
“Well, there are upwards of 44 of them now, at least that’s the count of the watchdogs in the blogosphere that have been installed into office through presidential appointment and it is, as you’ve said on your show and I’ve said many times over the course of the last six months, a complete shadow government. And it’s not just the amount of them. It’s also the superfluousness. We all know that there have been czars in past administrations, Homeland Security czar, drug czar, et cetera, but there are so many extra layers here of overlords who have usurped authority from confirmed cabinet appointments, and this includes a very shady character, Adolfo Carrion, who was the Bronx borough president and delivered Latino votes to Obama in that neighborhood. This guy is now the urban czar who has many more powers over the already confirmed Housing and Urban Development secretary Shaun Donovan,” Malkin said.
“One, it was a payoff and two, it’s a way for Adolfo Carrion to carry out the same kind of ‘pay for play’ deals that he specialized in when he was the Bronx borough president. Now he can use millions, tens of millions, hundreds of millions of dollars in federal grants to pay off developers who are seeking favors from the Obama administration,” she said. “That’s just one example.”
She also expressed concern about the administration’s fascination with population control.
“John Holdren’s mentors include one of the top international eugenics members most renowned, again, for promoting these same ideas of social engineering through the guise of quote/unquote science that basically amounts to eugenics and taking away babies from quote/unquote undesirables. He was paying homage to this mentor as recently as two years ago at one of the most prominent science gatherings of the country, the AAAS gathering, and there has been little, if any public questioning about it,” she said.
Then Malkin said, “It’s all about control. It’s all about seeing the human population as utilitarian means towards their ideological end. … John Holdren’s mentor Harrison Brown saw the world population as, quote, a pulsating mass of maggots, unquote. And I would like to see the day in Washington where we have watchdog journalists who apply a Holdren litmus test to Democrats and liberal journalists the way that we have a litmus test that we’ve seen every time a conservative or a Republican goes on the airwaves about this birther situation. You know, this is even more scary and more radical and more wacky than anything else the liberals are paying attention to with regard to the birtherism stuff, but you don’t see that litmus stuff.”
Beck said, “I have to tell you, the – I mean, first of all, the birther thing, what are you going to do. Even if it was true, what, are you going to take him out of office? You can’t do that.
“There’s so many things that are going on that are not on the fringes, not conspiratorial. These guys who are these czars, you look at Van Jones. Here he is one of the founding members of the Apollo project. When you find out about the Apollo project and know that the Apollo project and the Tides Foundation came as a direct response of the Reagan revolution where they said you know what, Reagan, he’s just been – he’s taken this country over because he has control of the corporations, so we need to get control of the corporations. The Apollo project is started. You can’t look at any of the books. You don’t know exactly what they’re doing, but the guy who started the Apollo project or one of the founding members is Van Jones, a communist and a black nationalist, and it’s the Apollo project that actually wrote the stimulus package.”
WND has reported on dozens of legal challenges to Obama’s status as a “natural born citizen.” The Constitution, Article 2, Section 1, states, “No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President.”
Some of the lawsuits question whether he was actually born in Hawaii, as he insists. If he was born out of the country, Obama’s American mother, the suits contend, was too young at the time of his birth to confer American citizenship to her son under the law at the time.
Other challenges have focused on Obama’s citizenship through his father, a Kenyan subject to the jurisdiction of the United Kingdom at the time of his birth, thus making him a dual citizen. The cases contend the framers of the Constitution excluded dual citizens from qualifying as natural born.
Complicating the situation is Obama’s decision to spend sums estimated in the hundreds of thousands of dollars to avoid releasing a state birth certificate that would put to rest all of the questions.
WND has reported that among the documentation not yet available for Obama includes kindergarten records, Punahou school records, Occidental College records, Columbia University records, Columbia thesis, Harvard Law School records, Harvard Law Review articles, scholarly articles from the University of Chicago, passport, medical records, files from his years as an Illinois state senator, Illinois State Bar Association records, any baptism records and adoption records.
