It looks as if all the serious constitutional questions about Barack Hussein Obama's eligibility for the office of the presidency are going to be ignored by every conceivable controlling legal authority.
I admit it. I am fully expecting Obama to be sworn in as the next president Jan. 20 without anyone in government anywhere – local, state or federal – performing their constitutional duty to ensure he met the requirements.
I've been accused by many on the left, right and center of beating a dead horse for pursuing this matter as long as I have.
Let me tell you something: I do not consider the Constitution a dead horse.
The plain language of the Constitution requires the president to be a "natural born citizen." I am not convinced today that Obama meets that test. It's just that simple.
If we're going to start fudging on the Constitution even before politicians take office, we have neutered the document that binds us as a nation in a most dramatic and costly fashion.
But let me make something else clear: I am not giving up, even though I admit there is no likelihood of stopping the Inauguration or in getting the key questions answered. Instead, I am shifting the focus of this very personal campaign.
If you agree with me that the Constitution reigns supreme over any and all elected officials in the U.S., stay tuned to WND for the next four years and beyond as this news agency transforms itself into Obama Watch Central.
The attacks on the Constitution didn't begin with Obama thumbing his nose at eligibility requirements. And they won't end there. WND will be at the forefront of chronicling the continuing subterfuge we can expect from the incoming administration as well as Congress and the Supreme Court.
If you want to be certain you don't miss another single exposure of that assault, and if you want to go on record as supporting my campaign demanding constitutional accountability, I urge you to sign the petition I launched in November on the eligibility issue. Already some 200,000 people have signed it, and they are getting these daily updates for free in their e-mail boxes. You should join them. It sends a message that you still care about the Constitution and that you are vigilantly watching.
Does this mean WND won't be "fair" to Obama?
What it means is that we take him at his word and that we have observed his actions – even before he assumes office. We believe he will attempt to deliver on his promises. I just don't think the American people fully understand what those promises are and the ramifications of them on the lives of every single citizen.
We are in for a rough journey, my friends.
