Is Glenn Beck Complicit in Undermining the Constitution of the United States and Will Donald Trump undo the damage?
Well, well, Obama has released a document that is meant to put to rest the so-called ‘birther’ issue. On April 27, 2011, Mr. Obama released a document that is purported to be his long form birth certificate. While I can’t attest to the authenticity of the document, the document produced does confirm a fact critical to one aspect of the eligibility issue. Many involved have for years now tried to focus the American people, and those charged with protecting our freedoms and founding documents, on the aspect dealing with exclusion from Presidential eligibility those having the potential of conflicted allegiance to the United States.
Thanks to Obama’s disclosure, his father can now be presumed to be Barack Hussein Obama, born in Kenya and thus a British subject. (There has been interesting speculation that that might not be the case.) Now, should the media so choose (Glenn Beck included), our attention could rightfully turn to the question that goes to the heart of the Founder’s concern and the reason they included the provision in the first place. Can a person (Obama) with the potential of conflicted allegiances vis-à-vis an admitted lack of unity of exclusive U.S. citizenship at the time of birth meet the requirements of Presidential eligibility under the Constitution?
The contention of many lawyers/experts studying this issue has been that the Constitution requires a Presidential candidate must have been born to parents (2) who were U.S. citizens at the time of the birth. However, there are also experts who take an opposite position that having only one parent who was a citizen at the time of birth would suffice. (Even the expert, Prof. Chin, relied upon by CNN and other left wing media has indicated the existence of differing views regarding who can be a Natural Born Citizen.) So let’s take a serious look at the issue and take the appropriate action. If the concerns of the American people have changed since the founding regarding this issue, then let’s get started on the Amendment process. However, let’s not allow thuggery in the media and by the major political parties impose their elitist views and consequences on the American people.
As all who have been closely following the issue of Obama’s probable lack of eligibility know – it has (from the beginning) been marginalized, ridiculed, mischaracterized, and intentionally made to appear that everyone raising legitimate questions were/are ‘birthers’ (those suggesting that Obama was born in Kenya). And yes, Glenn Beck joined early on the media’s barrage of unjustified denigration targeting those merely asking eligibility questions. Others, such as Politicians, have been trying as hard as they could to dance on the head a pin to avoid a complete discussion of the eligibility issue. (I’ve suggested before that Republicans might have an interest in side stepping the issue in order to keep the door open for Sen. Marco Rubio and Gov. Jindal in the future.) Thank you Donald Trump for having the balls to step up and do what you have (so far) to force Obama to present some modicum of documentation.
Like I said above, the “long form birth document” does aid in the discussion of the ‘natural born citizen’ issue by naming Barack Obama, Sr. as Obama’s father. It does not prove that Obama is a “natural born citizen”. However, it took a lot of courage for Mr. Trump step up and ask the questions he did, knowing full well the attacks he would suffer.
Unfortunately for Mr. Trump, having taken the first brave step, more questions and/or tests of honor and character await his attention.
Are you brave enough to ask the remaining questions or has your demand to see the long form birth certificate served some other motive?
Given that Lt. Col. Lakin (the man who refused to follow possible unlawful orders unless Obama simply release his long form birth certificate) is still serving a six month sentence in a military prison, will you demand that Obama grant Lt. Col. Lakin a full pardon and an opportunity to resign from the military with honor? (This question makes one wonder what type of man could allow a highly decorated military officer to be sent to prison when all that was required to prevent it was to release the document.
Will you continue to demand the release of the numerous other documents that Obama wants to keep hidden? Obama’s refusal to release such common documents reflects negatively on his character and indicates he has a lot more to hide from an American populous growing more and more suspect of his character and allegiances.
Back to Glen for a moment -
I believe Mr. Beck to be a very intelligent man, who has from the beginning been fully aware of the legitimacy of the eligibility issue and fully capable of understanding the legal issues involved. Many (myself included (by email)) have made sure that Glenn and/or his staff received the pertinent information/links related to this issue. Why Glenn has chosen to aid the MSM media in its successful effort of boiling the issue down to one denigrating word, ‘birthers’, only Glenn can answer.
We (the hundreds of thousands who are constantly in Glenn’s crosshairs) continue to try to support Mr. Beck because he does provide the American people a valuable service by providing information the MSM wants desperately keep hidden or misrepresented. However, it’s becoming more and more difficult when Glenn (the man who says he reveres the Constitution) constantly chides those committed to the entire document, which includes the Presidential eligibility requirements.
Of course Glenn won’t or can’t admit it now (so he certainly won’t apologize for it), it is clear to many that Glenn has been unwittingly assisting Mr. Obama and his ‘one world’ friends in pushing the Presidential eligibility provisions of the Constitution off the gangplank. I assume that Mr. Beck on some level believes that his actions were/are meant to protect the parts of the Constitution he believes in, but who is he to make such choices for the American people?
The questions still remain:
Who can and can’t be a ‘natural born citizen’?
Will Donald Trump have the courage to see through what he set in motion and help save the Constitution from the damage that Obama (with Glenn Beck’s unintended support) is doing to it?
In support of Lt. Col. Lakin’s courage in seeking the ‘Truth’ (and as a former In-Flight Tech in the Navy), I urge all who have served or have friends/family in the military to ask the following question of those currently serving.
Brothers and Sisters in the Military, when are you going to demand Obama establish that he is a Natural Born Citizen, eligible to serve as Commander In Chief?
The military is the only government organization that I continue to have respect for and it pains me criticize those serving. And I understand the consequences of challenging Obama’s eligibility directly, but the continuing attacks against our Constitution by the left cannot be allowed to pass without objection in some form or another. Acquiescence is not the only option.
Consider this please. What if every serviceman or woman went to his or her Chaplin, stated their concerns and provided the basic evidence (direct and circumstantial, links, former statements by NPR etc. indicating a Kenyan birth, etc., etc.) that would cause most reasonable persons to have legitimate questions about Obama’s lack of eligibility to serve and issue lawful orders? What if requests were made to each Chaplin instructing them to pass these concerns up the Chain of Command? Would there come a point, a number of requests that would cause the leadership to demand proof of eligibility?
Maybe military leadership could utilize the following provision?
§ 935. Art. 135. Courts of inquiry
(a) Courts of inquiry to investigate any matter may be convened by any person authorized to convene a general court-martial or by any other person designated by the Secretary concerned for that purpose, whether or not the persons involved have requested such an inquiry.
If the Oath to protect the Constitution is not important today, why don’t we just change the oath of allegiance to reflect our current level of commitment?
I, _______, do solemnly swear to protect ME and I will try to defend the Constitution as long as it doesn’t adversely impact the aforementioned ‘ME’.
Whoever is careless with the truth in small matters cannot be trusted with important matters.
Official Disclosure – Just to be clear, my graphics depict almost all members of the BOPAC Administration as being full of crap. They do not actually look like turds – one needs special ‘full of crap’ glasses to be able to see the core of those who continually feed America BS. I treat everyone equally – when Glenn Beck goes off on those who reasonably question Obama’s eligibility, he gets a half-full of crap depiction.
