Well, it appears that Obama has gotten away with an incredible fraud. After dozens of lawsuits, and over $2 million later, he has managed to hold on to his presidency, in spite of passing off fraudulent documents as legitimate, such as his selective service card and his “birth certificate,” both of which came under scrutiny by computer document experts and failed to prove genuine.
Though several anomalies exist in the documents, a few noticeable ones are that the “birth certificate” comes apart in layers which a scanned document would not, the certificate number has been manipulated, the certificate has numerous typefaces which a document from a circa 1961 typewriter would not, and Obama’s father is listed as “African” instead of Negro which would not be found on a document of that era.
So far only a sheriff in Arizona has had the courage to proceed, but now it is too late; Obama’s term is almost over. The process to vet a candidate’s eligibility to be president under the Constitution, Article 2, Section 1, was a total failure by both the Congress and the mainstream media. Now that they and the courts have let the country down, it is up to historians to bring out the truth, and history is likely to be harsh in judging these failures, and right it should be.
How long this may take is hard to tell, but whether a few years or several eventually the truth will come out. Perhaps in his trademark arrogance, since he was successful, he will during his lifetime release the records he has used court orders to hide from the public and keep secret, such as his school records, his college records, passport records, birth certificate, etc., though it is more likely it could be after as Obama cannot tolerate criticism of any kind.
However, the shadow this affair has thrown over the presidency may require legislation that candidates provide proof that they are eligible under the Constitution to run for the office of President of the United States, which Obama failed to do. It may also require clarification by the Supreme Court on what a “natural born” citizen is, as required by Article 1, Section 2, though the Court has previously indicated that a “natural born” citizen is one whose parents are both American citizens, which Obama’s were not since his father was a British subject from Kenya.
It would also be appropriate that those in power who were complicit in allowing an arguably ineligible fraud to assume the highest office in the land be prosecuted, starting with Nancy Pelosi and the head of the DNC in 2008 as both signed documents attesting to his eligibility to be president, though once again this may have to wait for the judgment of history.
Hopefully, such a shameful debacle will not happened again. It sends a disturbing message that we will allow our highest laws to be skirted if it suits the purposes of those in power, like some third world country. Worse it sends the wrong message to our children and their children that we failed on our watch to uphold principles that were established in founding our nation and refused to right a grievous wrong for political expediency and political correctness. In America no one is supposed to be above the law, no one, yet we seemingly allowed an obvious, outright fraud to be perpetrated at the highest level of our government, and those who should have at least investigated it looked the other way. Obama deserves the judgment of history, but now, so do we.
