Skeletons in Obama’s Closet Are Dangerous

If Nobama gets elected the only way he will stay out of jail is if he kills those of us that will not give up the quest to bring him to justice. The news media, the Democratic National Party and Obama’s major backers all know that Obama is breaking the law and is taking over America by coup. Their prestige and integrity is on the line. They are all political criminals. If it takes another coup to get him out, so be it. The Constitution protects our rights for Redress of Grievance !
The latest controversy stirring in the camp of the Democratic Presidential candidate revolves around a piece of paper. Barack Obama has thus far abstained from releasing his birth certificate. While in the past many would say such a small matter is an ultimately unimportant matter, in this case it has caused what seems to be a major ruckus among many voters. With the rumors dispelled earlier in Obama's fight for the candidacy coming back into play, some have become skeptical, nervous, and overall anxious over the Illinois Senator's refusal to release the document. So why should a piece of paper cause such a major commotion? The main issue revolves around the rumors associated with the Obama campaign's withholding of the document. Among them are questions of the place of Senator Obama's birth and some hidden truth behind the Senator's name. The first rumor is that Senator Obama was actually born in Kenya. This rumor seems to have originated in an email stating to have some hidden information about the details of the Senator's birth. According to the email, Barack Obama's mother was living in Kenya at the time of his birth. The email goes on to allege that after his birth, his mother took him to Hawaii to register the birth. The issue was raised on Snopes.com, where claims of his Kenyan birth were quickly disseminated, soon becoming claims that the non-American native was running for President in an attempt to disrupt the framework of the United States. Claims of

everything from Obama being some sort of conniving secret-Muslim seeking to destroy America to his being the Anti-Christ became all the rage in online forums and blogs. Yet these claims were quickly disputed, and all but forgotten . . . until now. Now, with the refusal to release his birth certificate, Barack Obama seems to have rekindled the flame beneath this rumor. The benefit and drawback of releasing the document, then, fall along the same lines: releasing it could either prove these claims true, or quickly and efficiently prove them false. The next rumors all hinge on the validity of Senator Obama's name. Some claim he changed his name from Barry to the more Middle Eastern/Islamic sounding Barack. Others claim his middle name was not Hussein, but Mohammed. Of course, many hold that, whether Obama released the document or not, the latter claim holds little weight. What, many ponder, would be the significance of his changing his middle name from one Muslim sounding name to another? Some, however, might seem to believe that the name change suggests an attempt to sound more Muslim, an idea few grant any credibility to, and others call just plain, well, dumb. In regards to the former matter, again, releasing the birth certificate would yield little to be concerned about. A Newsweek.com report already addressed Senator Obama's shedding of the "Barry" nickname in college, instead choosing a preference for the name he shares with his father, Barack. Thus, even if he had changed his name officially from a birth certificate record of "Barry" to "Barack," it wouldn't show a change to be "more Muslim," but instead simply adopts the name of his father. In other words, despite the hype, there seems to be little cause for controversy over this issue, either. However, the refusal to release the document, if not inflaming this issue, also suggests to some that something else might be "hidden" there. In light of all these issues, most of which have already been disputed and disregarded in the past, many question whether or not the issue of the birth certificate should be an issue at all. The issues which have been sparked over the birth certificate's release seem to be nominal at the most. Many have agreed the "controversy" seems more of a distraction than an actual issue; a report from the Online Journal calls the issue a "GOP dirty trick".

To be sure, some deep hidden secret regarding Senator Obama's origins and heritage could, in the end, prove extremely damaging, if not completely destructive, to his run for the Presidency. Yet his refusal to release the birth certificate, despite any validity to these claims or not, at this point only seems to prove just as detrimental. It seems only time will tell, whether the birth certificate is released or not, what the release-or refusal to release-will ultimately mean for Senator Obama's candidacy.

Barack Obama made a speech Tuesday in Philadelphia, where the founders made the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, and sought to assuage concerns about his relationship with a fiery, hate mongering pastor, Jeremiah Wright. Despite flowery verbiage about racial reconciliation, Barack Obama failed. Here is the crucial passage of the speech in which Obama seeks to tap dance around the fact that he attended the church of a hate mongering pastor for decades, whose ravings he claims to disagree with: "I have already condemned, in unequivocal terms, the statements of Reverend Wright that have caused such controversy. For some, nagging questions remain. Did I know him to be an occasionally fierce critic of American domestic and foreign policy? Of course. Did I ever hear him make remarks that could be considered controversial while I sat in church? Yes. Did I strongly disagree with many of his political views? Absolutely - just as I'm sure many of you have heard remarks from your pastors, priests, or rabbis with which you strongly disagreed." The last sentence in the paragraph is the one that should jump out. How many people who attend church of synagogue, unless the church is something like the Westboro Baptist Church, have heard from the pulpit the damnation of the United States of America and weird conspiracy theories about AIDS and 9/11? One would suspect that the answer is very few, if any. Yet Barack Obama wants to draw some kind of moral equivalence between a preacher who sermonizes hate and any other cleric, suggesting that hate and lunacy is a common ingredient in religious sermons. Obama tries to explain why he persisted in attended Reverend Wright's church.

"Given my background, my politics, and my professed values and ideals, there will no doubt be those for whom my statements of condemnation are not enough. Why associate myself with Reverend Wright in the first place, they may ask? Why not join another church? And I confess that if all that I knew of Reverend Wright were the snippets of those sermons that have run in an endless loop on the television and You Tube, or if Trinity United Church of Christ conformed to the caricatures being peddled by some commentators, there is no doubt that I would react in much the same way." Of course one might suggest that is all we need to know. But Obama goes on to try to find good in Reverend Wright. "But the truth is, that isn't all that I know of the man. The man I met more than twenty years ago is a man who helped introduce me to my Christian faith, a man who spoke to me about our obligations to love one another; to care for the sick and lift up the poor. He is a man who served his country as a U.S. Marine; who has studied and lectured at some of the finest universities and seminaries in the country, and who for over thirty years led a church that serves the community by doing God's work here on Earth - by housing the homeless, ministering to the needy, providing day care services and scholarships and prison ministries, and reaching out to those suffering from HIV/AIDS." In other words, it's alright that Jeremiah Wright is a raving lunatic who hates his own country, so long as his church also does goods works. The problem is that most churches and other places of worship do good works and also manage not to employ someone like Jeremiah Wright. Barack Obama cannot dance around the fact that his pastor, his spiritual advisor, is a hate monger who is pretending to be a follower of a man his faith says was crucified because of his love of his fellow men and his yearning for peace. Obama goes on to slander his fellow African Americans.

"Like other predominantly black churches across the country, Trinity embodies the black community in its entirety - the doctor and the welfare mom, the model student and the former gang-banger." God help us if that is true. Mind, this writer has attended services in black churches and the "raucous laughter" and the religious fever that Obama describes is quite real. But not hate filled sermons that thoroughly contradict the message of peace and love preached by Jesus of

Nazareth. Obama is not through with his attempt at moral equivalence. So anxious is he to skate away from the responsibility he holds for associating himself with a hate mongering minister, he trashes his own grandmother. "I can no more disown him than I can my white grandmother - a woman who helped raise me, a woman who sacrificed again and again for me, a woman who loves me as much as she loves anything in this world, but a woman who once confessed her fear of black men who passed by her on the street, and who on more than one occasion has uttered racial or ethnic stereotypes that made me cringe." How appalling. How despicable. An old lady, whom Obama professes to love, whose unfortunate attitudes were no doubt a product of a bygone era, is the moral equivalent of Jeremiah Wright, who whips up hate and rage from the pulpit. The fact that Obama would do such a thing speaks very ill about his own character. Obama also went on to compare the ravings of Jeremiah Wright to recent statements by Geraldine Ferraro. Not even a good liberal Democrat in good standing can escape the not too subtle charge of racism if it suits Obama's purpose. The rest of the speech was an adroit sounding attempt to get beyond the controversy that Obama finds himself in and to try to get his campaign back on track. Every element of the Obama stump speech was there. The victims, black and white, who can only be saved by electing Barak Obama President. The support for appeasement abroad (get out of Iraq) and socialism at home (universal health care, more money for education, etc.) The phony call for racial reconciliation, but only under the banner of liberalism. Hope. Change. Alleluia. Obama represents a different kind of racial huckster. Demagogues such as Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton are open about whipping up racial divisiveness in order to use black rage and white liberal guilt to increase their own political power. Shelby Steele recently suggested that Obama has a different approach. While professing to condemn racial divisiveness, he is very adroit at using it. He offers a great bargain for whites who feel guilty about the legacy of racism and discrimination that is a blot on American civilization, which he artfully describes in his speech. "Support me," he suggests. "Vote for me. And then you will be

innocent." It's a perverse way of being born again. Become an Obamaphile and one can be washed clean of the guilt. The price, of course, is far left Presidency that may well be the ruin of the Republic. Mind, the bargain doesn't work for anyone who doesn't feel guilt. No one living in America has owned a slave (or has been a slave.) Most people try very hard to adhere to the great principle of Dr. Martin Luther King to judge a person by the content of their character and nor the color of their skin. Most people have no reason to feel guilt. They have nothing to do with what their ancestors may or may not have done. That fact is inconvenient to the political ambitions of Barack Obama. He wants to be excused for his relationship with a racist, hate mongering preacher. But he wants you, who likely never had a racist bone in your body, to vote for him out of guilt that you had better feel or be suspected of the thought crime of racism, defined as not supporting Barack Obama. How many people are taken in by this ploy will determine the future of the United States.
