Michael Savage (San Francisco Chronicle)

Talk radio icon Michael Savage has labeled Barack Obama a “lifetime naked Marxist” and says he is troubled by the president’s refusal “to show a valid birth certificate.”

The comments came this week as Savage was blasting the advance toward socialism that is being pursued by the Obama administration in Washington.

Obama is “a man who refuses to show a valid birth certificate. A man who applies for college aid as a foreign student and then denies he’s foreign. A man who has a Social Security Number from a state he’s never even lived in,” Savage said, citing three of the major disputes over Obama’s eligibility to occupy the Oval Office, command U.S. troops and set foreign policy.

WND has reported on multiple legal and other challenges to Obama over whether he is 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.”

Savage’s comments, with the references to Obama’s deceptions regarding his eligibility, come at about the eight-minute mark:

Some of the lawsuits question whether Obama was 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.

Further, others question his citizenship by virtue of his attendance in Indonesian schools during his childhood and his travel to Pakistan three decades ago.

There have been numerous calls for his resignation or impeachment, although his harshest critics say impeachment isn’t a viable option, because it applies only to a legitimate president.

WND has reported that the birth certificate image, a “Certificate of Live Birth” from Hawaii, released by Obama in April, has been determined by numerous document, imaging and computer experts likely to be a forgery. One concluded it wasn’t even a good forgery, contending it was only an image that had been created digitally and then printed.

There also have been allegations that Obama attended Occidental College in California on programs restricted to foreign students, but when a court case approached the point at which relevant documents would have been required in court, the White House dispatched a team of attorneys to shut the move down without revealing any information.

Thirdly, a number of private investigators have confirmed that the Social Security number Obama uses has a prefix normally issued to residents of Connecticut, even though he has never lived in the state.

Savage was citing evidences of Obama’s socialist agenda.

“A man who orchestrates the sale of murder weapons to Mexican drug cartels. A man who can be held in contempt of court, in fact, was for illegally obstructing oil drilling in the Gulf of Mexico. A man who requires Americans to purchase a product from a third party (Obamacare), which is unconstitutional. A man who spent a trillion dollars on shovel-ready jobs and then admitted there was no such thing,” he said.

Savage said Obama also “bypassed” Congress to implement the failed illegal alien amnesty by “executive fiat.”

Obama is “a man who demanded an oil company hand over $20 billion to a political appointee, terminated America’s ability to put a man in to space, and encouraged racial discrimination and intimidation at polling places and refused to let the Justice Department investigate the New Black Panther Party.”

Savage also described Obama’s adherence to the Cloward-Piven strategy of imposing socialism on a free society, through orchestrated crises, at which points the government demands “quick action” to resolve.

“Slowness of Congress is a mark of democracy,” he said. “Quick change is what socialists like.”
