My friends, I consider myself to be a fairly rational individual and generally as an American I firmly believe in the freedom to believe in what we as individuals have the right as Americans to believe in what we feel is for the best for ourselves and our loved ones. I came across this article and was stunned at what I was reading.
As I am eating my T-Day left-overs, watching college football, and thinking to myself how great it will be to get mt Christmas shopping done early, I almost choked on my ham sandwich as I was reading this horrific article.
Never in my life have I ever had to endure these self-awakening experiences like I have these past three years since the “anointed one” was fraudulently elected to the Presidency of these United States of America. So many dots that still have not been connected in this man’s life, too many anomalies to count, aliases, three strikes on Obama’s bogus social security number, addresses across the country, nefarious friends and associates, and “vision quests” to countries that harbor communists and terrorists. Need I say more?
The following video is a database pull that I personally completed on Obama’s alias, “Harrison J Bounel” that he has associated with his bogus CT social security number. This man does not have the best interest of this nation when it comes to his “Communist” , “Bolshevik”, education. The video is clear and indisputable evidence that this man is a fraud and his whole existence is fraudulent.
“Is Barack Obama a KGB Agent?” October 12, 2011
“Barack Obama with his brothers Samson and Ben in 1987 in Nairobi. I have a perfect memory and I state that I saw the man in the center of this picture in Moscow in 1987, where I’ve been trained at KGB Intelligence Institute.” [Editor's Note: This excerpt is from a 55-page document sent to me Tuesday by Kryzhansky, 53, left, who claims to be a former KGB Intelligence Officer and sniper. I find it confusing but worth posting for a discussion of Obams's background .
This is Barack H Obama pictured in Nairobi with his two other Brothers
The picture above, which appeared in the Daily Mail in Oct. 2009 doesn’t look like Barack Obama. I have no way of knowing whether Kryzhansky is an impostor or not. The rest of the document is provocative but inconclusive. He has an youTube presence and a blog. Keep in mind, there are credible reports that Henry Kissinger was also a Soviet agent.
So was Victor Rothschild (1910-1990). The KGB may be the ultimate instrument of the NWO. ] by Mikhail Kryzhanovsky (email@example.com) (henrymakow.com) August 4, 1961- Barack Obama was born in Honolulu, Hawaii. If there’s something very wrong with someone’s birth certificate and if there’s an indication that this someone used a birth certificate of a newborn child (Virginia Sunahara) who died at birth or soon after birth, we have to talk about the methods Russian intelligence (SVR, a former KGB) and its illegal espionage department.
We have to talk about one of the illegal spy “documentation process” – using birth certificates to get legal documents in USA - SS#, driver license, passport. There are two possibilities. First is – Obama was exchanged by a professional illegal spy, because of the “birth certificate” issue (that’s the #1 sign Russian illegal intelligence might be involved). Second – Obama was recruited and trained in 1981-1983 years in Moscow (“lost” Columbia University years).
Most probably, he was just recruited. Now, let’s reconstruct Obama’s biography as I see it with my 30 years of espionage experience. Illegal spy cover story works best if it’s a mix of actual and fake facts. “Obama” (let’s call him John Smith) was a child of a student from Kenya who studied in Moscow and dated a Russian girl. Such kids in Russia were often unwanted by both partners and were raised and educated at a special school. Like Obama, John Smith was born in 1961 and, like him, graduated from high school in 1979. KGB paid attention to a very smart young man.
Smith was an Intelligence Institute student in 1979-1981 in Moscow, not far from “Cosmos” Hotel. There are couple of buildings in the area and I got intelligence education myself in one of them back in 1987, (15 Yaroslavskaya Street, Moscow Russia). Then a decision was made to train him individually as illegal intelligence officer .The “dacha” (Russian for small villa) not far from Moscow, provides an ideally isolated territory for training. 2-3 instructors live there to immerse the candidate completely into his American identity and supervise him all the time… After special training candidate often goes through a special process: a) illegal probation period abroad.
A trip abroad through intermediate countries with numerous changes of passports and cover stories, jobs, personal connections. Then he gets to the target country, stays there for another 1-2 years and goes back to his country for additional training and correction of cover story — actually, it’s his first combat assignment. The most important part of this assignment is to check the reliability of the cover story and documents; the cover story has to be reinforced with new and old true facts, like short-term studies at universities or professional training courses). b) intermediate legislation.
On his way back the officer could stay in an intermediate country for another 1-2 years, make contacts with business, scientists, government employees, celebrities. c) basic legislation. Officer comes to the target country, obtains genuine documents, gets a job which allows him to travel and talk to many people, recruit informants thus creating an illegal station). At the same time, in 1979-1981, [the real] Barack Obama studied at Occidental College in Los Angeles where he became a socialist ready to transform the nation by redistributing wealth. KGB station in Washington, DC which was constantly looking for future secret sources at American top universities and colleges, like Columbia, Yale or Harvard, got information about young socialist.
They sent his picture and info to Moscow where some resemblance was discovered between a college student from Los Angeles and a future illegal spy John Smith. Barack Obama is KGB/SVR illegal spy 1981 – Obama traveled to Indonesia to visit his mother and sister Maya, and visited the families of college friends in India and Pakistan for 3 weeks. Then something happened in India, a good friend to Soviet Union and a perfect place to recruit foreigners.
He was recruited and he disappeared. John Smith aka Barack Obama came back to the United States – change of agents, one of regular illegal espionage methods. Obama’s father , Barack Obama Sr., aged 46 died in a car accident in Nairobi. His mother, Ann Dunham, lived in Indonesia and might be just avoided or ignored by her “son” (Don Johnson, Dunham co-worker, said “Obama was distancing himself from her”).
Russians approached her under a “false flag” ( National Security Agency or CIA) and explained that her son had to stay abroad for a secret mission for some time. They told her that she had to be ready to accept another person as her own son. For operation like that, espionage agencies often recruit close relatives and allow them to meet their son (daughter) from time to time outside USA. Money talks, there’s nothing unusual, though for Dunham the pressure and depression was too big – she died in 1995 of cancer at 52.
Time changes people, so “Obama” had to stay away from his friends and do not show up in public too much. 1981 – He transferred to Columbia University in New York City, where he majored in political science and where nobody could remember him at all, and graduated with a B.A. in 1983. “Obama” declined repeated requests to talk about his New York years, release his Columbia transcript or identify a single fellow student, co-worker, roommate or friend from those years. Wall Street Journal editorial in September 2008, titled “Obama’s Lost Years” noted that Fox News contacted 400 Obama’s classmates at Columbia and found no one who even remembered him.
“Mostly, my years at Columbia were an intense period of study,” Obama told Columbia College Today in a 2005 alumnus interview. “I didn’t socialize that much. I was like a monk”. Perfect cover up ! Columbia has refused to release any records regarding Obama’s attendance, including his application to attend, his grades, and his financial aid records, if any exist.
Only one person could order Columbia to shut up – CIA Director Leon Panetta. 1983-1985 He worked at the [CIA Front] Business International Corporation and at the New York Public Interest Research Group. He worked in Chicago as community organizer in 1985-1988. 1987 – Barack Obama with his brothers Samson and Ben in 1987 in Nairobi. I have a perfect memory and I state that I saw the man in the centre of this picture in Moscow in 1987, where I’ve been trained at KGB Intelligence Institute. 1988 – He traveled to Europe to meet his KGB handlers and get new instructions.
He had a choice – a safe variant (to make a political career in one of African countries), and a risky one of staying in America – KGB wanted him to be Martin Luther King #2 . But it appeared he could get much more which was Oval Office. It was decided he could stay in USA longer and it was a success : Illinois Senator (1997-2004) and U.S. Senator (2005-2008). 1988-1991 – In 1988, Obama entered Harvard Law School.
During his summers he worked as a summer associate at the law firms of Sidley Austin in 1989 and Hopkins & Sutter in 1990. After graduating from Harvard in 1991, he returned to Chicago. 1995 – Ann Dunham, Obama’s mother, aged 52, died of cancer in Honolulu, Hawaii. 1997 – Obama was elected the Illinois State Senator 2004 – 1995 – Ann Dunham, Obama’s mother, aged 52, died of cancer in Honolulu, Hawaii. 1997- Obama was elected the Illinois State Senator 2004 – Obama was elected the US Senator August 5-7, 2005 – Senators Lugar and Obama in Russia — “Obama” visited Russia (together with Senator R. Lugar) and met secretly his SVR (former KGB intelligence) handlers to discuss his prospectives for the U.S. presidency.
It appeared that U.S. Senator Barack “Obama” was getting out of control and Russians decided to teach him a lesson and delayed his flight over technicalities. February 10, 2007 – “Obama” announced his candidacy for President of the United States. August 28,2008 – Nancy Pelosi conspiracy. Barack Obama and Joe Biden were nominated as Democratic candidates for the US President and Vice President. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi knew that Obama was not eligible under the US Constitution – that’s why she wrote the first variant of nomination certification and then changed it . .. November 4, 2008 – Obama won the race and became the first Russian illegal spy to be elected the U.S. President.
The Congressional Research Service, a public policy arm of Congress, officially admits no one in the government ever vetted Obama’s constitutional eligibility. October 2, 2010 – He managed to fire Rahm Emanuel (I’ll tell you why) and after that Russians humiliated him one more time – in April 28, 2011, he was forced to nominate Panetta to replace Robert Gates as Secretary of Defense. Panetta would end all operations and withdraw all U.S. troops from Iraq – that’s another Russian intelligence order. Obama, actually, lost half of his power by giving two key Cabinet positions to Clinton’s team – that’s how Russians punished their illegal spy for his independence.
Now he’s a good Russian boy :
1.He’s destroying America – its called “socialist intervention into the US economy”. A person who wants to spend $1 trillion on health care reform which is not a priority at all in the middle of horrible economic crisis, is either an idiot or an enemy of America with a very well calculated plan to terminate the country. Obama did it – in March 2010 he signed Health Care Reform legislation into law.
2. He’s into immigration reform which is a socialist intervention into American society – he’ll turn 12 million poor illegal Latinos into US citizens-revolutionaries. In 2012 they’ll get green cards, by 2016 they’ll get citizenship and bring here all their family members (grandparents, parents, brothers, sisters, brides and grooms) – around 50-60 million unemployed poorly educated people. And that will be the death of America, the end of American Constitution and the birth of a totalitarian “Obama – forever ” Communist regime.
3.Rising unemployment and inflation, budget deficit at every state and city is another Obama’s trick, planned by Russian intelligence – he’s pushing big states like Texas, New York and California to a “boiling point” after which they might take serious steps towards independence – the beginning of America’s death. USSR collapsed the same way – now Russians through Obama want revenge.
4.While Bill Clinton saved one Russian “mole” John Deutch, Obama saved 10 (ten) Russian illegal spies, arrested by FBI in June, 2010, sending them back to Russia in 2010 without any investigation – severe blow to American national security and priceless gift.

This is an undocumented supposed incident that happened in Harvard.
In a series of comments over the past 10 days, Obama and his administration repeatedly declined to respond directly about whether he ever faced allegations of sexual harassment at the journal. They have also declined to address questions about specific reporting confirming that there were financial settlements in two cases in which men leveled complaints.
THE KANSAS CITIAN has confirmed the identities of the two male journal editors who complained about Obama but, for privacy concerns, is not publishing their names.
White House spokesman Jay Carney told THE KANSAS CITIAN the president indicated to White House staff that he was “vaguely familiar” with the charges and that the university’s general counsel had resolved the matter.
Obama was president of the Harvard Law Review from late-1988 to mid-1989. THE KANSAS CITIAN learned of the allegations against him, and over the course of several weeks, has put together accounts of what happened by talking to a lengthy roster of former university officials, current and past students and others familiar with the workings of the journal at the time Obama was there.
In one case, THE KANSAS CITIAN has seen documentation describing the allegations and showing that the university formally resolved the matter. Both men received separation packages that were in the five-figure range.
On the details of Obama’s allegedly inappropriate behavior with the two men, THE KANSAS CITIAN has a half-dozen sources shedding light on different aspects of the complaints.
The sources — including the recollections of close associates and other documentation — describe episodes that left the men upset and offended. These incidents include conversations allegedly filled with innuendo or personal questions of a sexually suggestive nature, taking place at hotels during conferences, at other officially sanctioned journal events and at the journal’s offices. There were also descriptions of physical gestures that were not overtly sexual but that made men who experienced or witnessed them uncomfortable and that they regarded as improper in a professional relationship.
UPDATE: Third man comes forward to AP.
A third former editor says he considered filing a workplace complaint over what he considered aggressive and unwanted behavior by Barack Obama when he worked under the president in the 1991 at the University of Chicago. He says the behavior included a private invitation to his apartment.
He worked for the University of Chicago when he was a Visiting Law and Government Fellow. He told The Associated Press that Obama made sexually suggestive remarks or gestures about the same time that the two editors of the Harvard Law Review had settled separate harassment complaints against him. The employee described situations in which he said Obama told him he had confided to colleagues how attractive he was and invited him to his apartment outside work. He spoke on condition of anonymity, saying he feared retaliation. The White House declined to comment.

By: Anthony Martin, Conservative Examiner
Over the last two days several GOP insiders who are decidedly conservative and who are distressed over the direction the leadership is taking the Party have stated that the Republican establishment is “too spineless” to go after Obama on the Fast and Furious scandal.
“Boehner doesn’t have the guts to go after him,” stated one insider.
The statement was made in answer to a question as to why the Republican leadership in the House seems reticent about pursuing broad-based investigations into Project Gunwalker (Operation Fast and Furious), in spite of the fact that Darrell Issa‘s committee has uncovered enough information on Obama and the entire top tier of the Administration to merit those investigations.
Issa’s committee is limited in scope, as are all committees in the House and Senate. Congressional observers say that in order to accomplish a broad-based investigation that will result in definite dire consequences for the perpetrators of the scandal, Speaker John Boehner will need to push other House committees to launch their own investigations, such as the House Judiciary Committee, the House Foreign Affairs Committee, and others.
Judiciary has oversight of Eric Holder and the Justice Department. Foreign Affairs has oversight over Hillary Clinton and the State Department.
But Boehner has shown no willingness whatsoever to take this path. In addition, the Speaker has resisted efforts to use the Office of the House Sergeant at Arms to serve as the legal team for Issa in an effort to insure that any special prosecutor selected to delve into the scandal will not come from the Department of Justice–a main target of the investigation.
In the Senate, the explanation for the foot-dragging is clear. Democrats control the chamber, despite their efforts of late to portray the entire Congress as ‘Republican’ in order to give themselves some distance from the fact that the public exhibits little trust for the body. In spite of Senator Charles Grassley‘s efforts on the Senate Judiciary Committee to fully investigate Gunwalker, the Iowa Republican has been thwarted on every hand by committee chairman Patrick Leahy, D-Vermont, and other Democrats who have shown no interest in pursuing the matter.
Given that the Senate is under Democrat control, the common assumption has been that there is little that Issa can actually do in the House to move the investigation forward. While there is much truth, ultimately, in that assumption, there is, however, much more that can be done in the House provided Speaker Boehner gets on board.
First, Boehner can bring the Gunwalker scandal to the forefront of the attention of the media by publicly stating in a special news conference that the House will use every means possible within its power to investigate the matter. Such a move would send D.C. spinning on its heels.
Second, Boehner can urge the House Judiciary Committee and other pertinent committees to begin to utilize all of their resources to launch their own investigations.
Third, Boehner can announce that any evidence suggesting illegal activity that is discovered in those investigations will be prosecuted by the Office of the House Sergeant at Arms, thus bypassing a DOJ lawyer investigating the DOJ.
GOP insiders say he won’t do it. “He doesn’t have the stomach for turning Washington upside down to get to the bottom of this,” said one operative.
If this is the case, there is a course of action available to conservative Republicans who wish to see justice done–an effort to remove Boehner and replace him with someone who will not hesitate to pursue a course of justice in this scandal that has become the largest in U.S. history.

The Obama Eligibility Question
Never in American history has a national leader served under a darker cloud of suspicion than Barack Hussein Obama. Was he born in Hawaii or in Kenya? Did he become an Indonesian citizen in 1967? Where did he spend the summer of 1981? Did he actually attend classes at Columbia? Did he write Dreams from My Father? These are all interesting questions, but not the most critical ones. The most critical question relates to his eligibility. Is he eligible to serve as President of the United States, or is he a usurper? Let’s analyze what we know to be true.
First, we have the absolute and unequivocal requirements of Article II. Section 1 of the U.S. Constitution, which states that, “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; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty-five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.”
We know that Obama was not a citizen of the United States at the time the Constitution was adopted, we know that he was at least thirty-five years of age when he took office in January 2009, and we know that he has been a U.S. resident for at least fourteen years. But is he a “natural born” citizen? What is a “natural born” citizen, and how do we prevent an individual who is not a natural born citizen from ever becoming president or vice president?
To answer these questions we must examine how our political leaders, from the Founding Fathers through the present day, have defined the term “natural born;” we must understand U.S. government policy on dual citizenship; we must examine the circumstances of Obama’s birth and citizenship; and finally, we must examine the vetting process that was designed to prevent an ineligible person from ascending to the presidency or the vice presidency.
What is a “Natural Born” Citizen?
In drafting the U.S. Constitution, the Founders relied on the work of Swiss philosopher Emerich de Vattel. In his 1758 legal treatise, The Law of Nations, Book One, Chapter 19, in a section titled “Of the citizens and natives,” Vattel defines the term “natural born Citizen” as follows:
“… The natives, or natural-born citizens, are those born in the country, of parents who are citizens… The country of the fathers is therefore that of the children; and these become true citizens merely by their tacit consent. I say that, in order to be of the country, it is necessary that a person be born of a father who is a citizen; for, if he is born there of a foreigner, it will be only the place of his birth, and not his country [emphasis added].”
When the Founding Fathers met in Philadelphia in September 1787 to approve the final draft of the U.S. Constitution, the physical scars of the War of Independence from Great Britain were still visible all around them and a deep-seated animosity toward all things British colored every aspect of their daily lives. So is it conceivable that, just five years and eleven months after the British surrendered at Yorktown, the Founders would have presented to the states for ratification a Constitution that would allow an individual with divided loyalties – e.g. an individual with dual US-British citizenship – to serve as president or vice president of the United States? Not likely.
Expressing the prevailing concerns of the time, and as an expression of the fear of foreign influence that gripped the hearts of the Founders, Alexander Hamilton wrote in the Federalist Papers, “These most deadly adversaries of republican government (cabal, intrigue, etc.) might actually have expected to make their approach from more than one quarter, but chiefly from the desire in foreign powers to gain an improper ascendant in our councils. How could they better gratify this than by raising a creature of their own (a “Manchurian candidate?”) to the chief magistracy of the Union?”
What is likely, even probable, is that the Founders drafted Article II, Section 1 so as to reflect Vattel’s definition of a “natural born” citizen. That is precisely why the Framers found it necessary to include in Article II, Section 1 the often overlooked and little understood words, “or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution…”
At the time the Constitution was adopted there were three types of citizens: 1) The former British subjects who, having renounced all foreign allegiances and having pledged to each other their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor, became citizens of a sovereign American nation when the Declaration of Independence was signed on July 4, 1776; 2) The post-Declaration children of those who became U.S. citizens on July 4, 1776, the first “natural born” citizens of the United States, and all less than twelve years old at the time the Constitution was ratified on June 21, 1788; and 3) A class of citizens comprised of those who were naturalized citizens by act of law, requiring a loyalty oath and renunciation of all foreign allegiances, and those who were dual citizens by automatic operation of foreign laws.
To fully understand the importance of the words, “or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution…,” it is necessary to recognize three significant dates. Those dates are: 1) July 4, 1776, the date on which the Declaration was signed, making all citizens of the thirteen colonies citizens of the United States; 2) June 21, 1788, the date on which ratification by the State of New Hampshire made the Constitution the official law of the land; and 3) July 4, 1811, the date on which the first “natural born” citizens… those born to U.S. citizens after the signing of the Declaration on July 4, 1776… became thirty-five years of age. (It was not until the thirty-fifth anniversary of the signing of the Declaration that the first natural born citizens became eligible to serve as president or vice president of the United States.)
Since the Founders intended that only “natural born” citizens should ever serve as president or vice president… excluding naturalized citizens and those with a history of dual nationality… it became necessary to provide an exemption of limited duration covering those who were born prior to July 4, 1776. For example, presidents Washington, J. Adams, Jefferson, Madison, Monroe, J.Q. Adams, and Jackson were all “citizens,” but not “natural born” citizens because they were born prior to July 4, 1776. All were “grandfathered” and made eligible under the phrase, “or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution…” Martin Van Buren, born to U.S. citizens on December 5, 1782, became the first “natural born” U.S. president.
It was the simplest and easiest way of creating a body of candidates during the earliest years of the republic, unconstrained by the requirement that they be “natural born” citizens, at least 35 year of age. Every U.S. president since Van Buren… with the exception of Chester A. Arthur, whose father was a British subject at the time of his birth, and Barack Obama, whose father was also a British subject at the time of his birth… has been a “natural born” U.S. citizen.
The Constitution limits candidates for president and vice president to “natural born” citizens and to those who were citizens of the United States at the time the Constitution was adopted. There can be no exceptions… not even for Barack Obama.
In 1866, John A. Bingham, chief framer of the 14th Amendment, which granted citizenship to the freed slaves, wrote as follows: “Every human being born within the United States of parents not owing allegiance to any foreign sovereignty [emphasis added] is, in the language of the Constitution itself, a natural born citizen.”
In subsequent years, as modern transportation systems were developed and international travel became commonplace, the term “natural born Citizen” evolved to include those who were born to American parents outside the continental limits of the United States… as was the case with former Michigan Governor George W. Romney (born in Mexico to American parents) and Senator John McCain (born in Panama to American parents.)
Clearly, those who drafted the U.S. Constitution and subsequent amendments knew what it meant to be a “natural born” citizen, but what of our political leaders of today?
In the early months of 2008, at a time when Hillary Rodham Clinton was the frontrunner for the Democratic nomination and only those in the “tin foil hat” brigade of the party were taking Barack Obama seriously, a number of lawsuits were filed questioning whether Senator John McCain, having been born in the Panama Canal Zone, was a natural born U.S. citizen.
Former U.S. Solicitor General Theodore Olson, a conservative Republican, and Harvard Law professor Laurence H. Tribe, a liberal Democrat, were assigned the task of researching the issue. In a March 19, 2008 memorandum, Olson and Tribe concluded that, “based on original meaning of the Constitution, the Framers’ intentions, and subsequent legal and historical precedent, Sen. McCain’s birth, to parents who were U.S. citizens serving on a U.S. military base in the Panama Canal Zone in 1936, makes him a ‘natural born Citizen’ within the meaning of the Constitution.”
Weeks later, in an April 10, 2008 statement, Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-VT) chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said, “Based on the understanding of the pertinent sources of constitutional meaning, it is widely believed that if someone is born to American citizens anywhere in the world they are natural born citizens. Because he was born to American citizens, there is no doubt in my mind that Senator McCain is a natural born citizen [emphasis added].”
This was followed by an April 30, 2008 Senate resolution, approved by a vote of 99-0 (Senator John McCain abstaining). The resolution declared: “Whereas John Sidney McCain, III, was born to American citizens on an American military base in the Panama Canal Zone in 1936: Now, therefore, be it Resolved, That John Sidney McCain, III, is a ‘natural born citizen’ under Article II, Section 1, of the Constitution of the United States.”
It is important to note that all four references… the 1866 Bingham statement, the Olson-Tribe Memorandum, the Leahy statement, and the U.S. Senate Resolution… all utilize the plural terms “parents” or “American citizens,” strongly suggesting that the “natural born” question rests, in large part, on the necessity of both parents being U.S. citizens.
While the Constitution itself does not define the term “natural born Citizen,” the legal precedent referred to in the Olson-Tribe memorandum cited above is taken from Minor v. Happersett, 88 U.S. 162(1875), the only defining precedent established by the U.S. Supreme Court. The Court concluded in Minor that, “At common-law, with the nomenclature of which the framers of the Constitution were familiar, it was never doubted that all children born in a country of parents who were its citizens became themselves, upon their birth, citizens also. These were natives, or natural-born citizens, as distinguished from aliens or foreigners.”
It is also important to note that, during the past decade, a number of resolutions have been introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives aimed at amending Article II, Section 1 of the Constitution, completely altering the traditional interpretation of the term “natural born Citizen.” For example, in support of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s stated presidential ambitions, Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA), introduced House Joint Resolution 104 on September 15, 2004. The resolution proposed to amend Article II, Section 1 of the U.S. Constitution by adding the following language:
“A person who is a citizen of the United States, who has been a citizen of the United States for at least 20 years, and who is otherwise eligible to hold the Office of the President, is not ineligible to hold that Office by reason of not being a native born citizen of the United States.”
H.J.R. 104 was referred to the House Judiciary Committee, Subcommittee on the Constitution, where it remained through the end of the 108th Congress. Then, early in the 109th Congress, on February 1, 2005, Rohrabacher made a second attempt with the introduction of H.J.R. 15, which contained essentially the same language as the failed H.J.R. 104 of the previous Congress. And while it is understandable that Rohrabacher would attempt to amend the Constitution to make it possible for his own governor, a naturalized citizen, to seek the presidency, similar attempts by Democrats during the same decade are not so easily understood or explained.
For example, on June 11, 2003, during the 108th Congress, Rep. Vic Snyder (D-AR) introduced H.J.R. 59 which would have totally eliminated the “natural born Citizen” requirement in Article II, Section 1 by substituting the following language:
“A person who has been a citizen of the United States for at least 35 years and who has been a resident within the United States for at least 14 years shall be eligible to hold the office of
President or Vice President.”
The Snyder proposal was followed by H.J.R. 67, introduced on September 3, 2003 by Rep. John Conyers (D-MI). The Conyers proposal would have added the following substitute language to Article II, Section 1 of the Constitution:
“A person who has been a citizen of the United States for at least 20 years shall be eligible to hold the Office of President.”
On January 4, 2005, early in the 109th Congress, Conyers made a second attempt with the introduction of H.J.R. 2, proposing the same language as contained in H.J.R. 67 of the 108th Congress. And on April 14, 2005, Rep. Vic Snyder made yet another attempt, introducing H.J.R. 42, containing amendatory language identical to his H.J.R. 59 of the 108th Congress.
All of the above resolutions, proposing to send constitutional amendments to the states for ratification, suffered the same fate. All died in committee without being acted upon.
Any member of Congress is free to introduce a resolution proposing an amendment to the U.S. Constitution. However, what distinguishes Rep. Rohrabacher’s resolutions from those of his Democratic colleagues is that his motive was clear… he was interested in making it possible for his governor, Arnold Schwarzenegger, to seek the presidency. The motivations of his Democrat colleagues, on the other hand, are a mystery; they only serve to raise important questions.
In other words, if the “natural born Citizen” requirement had not represented a major problem at any time in U.S. history, why were Democrats suddenly concerned about it in 2003, 2004, and 2005 when a young black man, the son of an American mother and an African father, was emerging as a rising star in the Democratic Party?
So the question arises, what did Congressmen Snyder and Conyers know that caused them to offer proposed constitutional amendments in the House of Representatives? More specifically, what did they know about Obama’s presidential ambitions and his inability to meet the “natural born Citizen” standard, and when did they know it?

President OBAMA’s shadowy past could doom his future, The ENQUIRER has learned.
A blockbuster new book rips the lid off President Barack Obama’s darkest secrets – and could doom his bid to win a second term in the White House!
The explosive tell-all by take-no-prisoners blogger Mondo Frazier reveals the commander in chief is a “chain-smoking wreck” who could be hooked on prescription drugs, and claims he may have spied for the CIA in college.
“I’ve uncovered that President Obama has spent over $2 million in legal fees to keep the details of his past hidden,” Frazier told The ENQUIRER. “This new book will surely impact his re-election campaign.”
In “The Secret Life of Barack Hussein Obama,” published by Simon & Schuster’s Threshold Editions press, Frazier alleges President Obama could have been a “CIA double agent” when he was a student at Columbia University.
That may be the reason why Obama refuses to release his Columbia records, according to Frazier, who also discloses that former National Security Agency employee Wayne Madsen has discovered CIA files directly linked to this secret.
In another bombshell, Frazier claims a clandestine effort is already underway to prevent Obama’s re-election, with “a team of ex-CIA officers…traveling the globe assembling a dossier of documents on Obama’s past, including his education, passport, travel and residency records.”
Meanwhile, with the economy in shambles, Obama has turned into “a nervous, chain-smoking wreck,” and it’s even feared that he’s hooked on “prescription anxiety medication,” according to Frazier. The book also claims the stressed-out president has been “yelling” at staffers and throwing “temper tantrums.”
Painting Obama as paranoid, Frazier writes the chief executive maintains a secret “enemies list” that includes conservative commentators Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck.
Frazier also claims Democratic Party insiders secretly “don’t think” Obama “is up to the job of president and don’t want him to run again in 2012.”
