It’s clear Republicans in office and seeking office this year are not going to attack Barack Obama where he is most vulnerable – his very legitimacy to hold office under the Constitution as a “natural born citizen.”
He’s not a natural born citizen.
At least by his own admission, he was a dual citizen at birth. Of course, Obama is not known for telling the truth – or even the same lie.
Prior to presidential ambitions he apparently got in 2007, he and his literary surrogates boasted of his being “Kenyan-born.” I don’t know if that story was true or not. But it really doesn’t matter. It also doesn’t matter where he was born, but there is great suspicion and plenty of evidence to suggest he is lying with his new cover story about a Hawaiian birth.
But let’s suppose for a moment that the evidence of Obama’s ultimate election fraud becomes overwhelming after he leaves office in 2013, assuming he is defeated and has the decency to do what all past defeated presidents have done throughout American history.
What will it tell the American people about the enabling Republicans who were too afraid to challenge Obama when it really counted?
What will it mean for all of the legislation Obama signed during his four years in office?
What will it mean for the U.S. Supreme Court justices appointed for life terms by Obama?
What if the indisputable facts become widely known – or perhaps even proven in a court of law?
Will Republicans just go on with business as usual?
Will it change the course of American history?
Or will we still be in a position where we just can’t talk about matters of constitutional eligibility in polite company?
Will Republicans join Democrats in nominating candidates who are ineligible for office?
Will the Constitution be amended by fiat?
Or will Republicans awaken to the opportunity to restore the Constitution in all of its beautiful meaning?
Will they realize that two sitting U.S. Supreme Court justices are as illegitimate as the man who appointed them and demand replacements?
There are many people out there – some very powerful and influential – who would like for me to drop this issue altogether. It hurts my reputation, they say. It hurts business, they say. You’ve got a brand to protect, they say.
Well, in response, I say that my reputation and my business and my brand are based on the pursuit of the truth. And, if I capitulate to those voices, as almost everyone else in the media and politics have, I simply couldn’t look at myself in the mirror every morning. There would be no reason for me to do what I do. I would lose the motivation that sets me and my news organization apart from all the others. WND and Joseph Farah would just be two more droning voices in the cacophony of media noise out there.
I can tell you that is not going to happen.
I got into this business more than 30 years ago for one reason – to pursue the truth. And that’s what I am going to continue to do until the day God takes me home.
As a businessman, I never thought I would wish for more competition in that pursuit, but I do.
As an American, I never thought I would see the day when courage and conviction in American politicians on both sides of the aisle was as scarce as hen’s teeth, but I have.
As a journalist, I never thought I would see the day when my colleagues were so blinded to the truth, but it’s here.
As a Christian, I never thought I would see so many followers of the One True God accept lies as truth and truth as lies, but too many have.
Maybe this is a losing battle, but I know I will go to the grave with a clear conscience and the knowledge that I fought the good fight for truth and justice.
For now, that’s enough for me.
