Ronald Reagan brought down the Soviet Union during the 1980s by bankrupting the “evil empire,” forcing the Kremlin to try to compete with his “Star Wars” missile defense program. They couldn’t keep pace in the arms race and the Soviet empire imploded.
So, as we now find ourselves racing headlong toward the so-called “fiscal cliff,” is this payback time for international communism? Is that what Barack Obama is all about? I have never been much of a conspiracy theorist… I try as best I can to stick to what we actually know to be true… but I’m beginning to see the outlines of a major international conspiracy. So humor me for a few moments, if you will.
In early 2008, when it looked as if Barack Obama might actually defeat the vaunted Clinton political machine, an article titled “The First Time I Heard of Barack” circulated on the Internet. It was written by a man named Tom Fife who claimed to have made frequent trips to Moscow in the early 1990s, working on a software-development joint venture with Russian partners.
On a trip to Moscow in early 1992, he and several other Americans were invited to dine at the apartment of their Russian associate. As he describes the evening, everything went well until late in the evening when their Russian partner’s wife, a hard core communist, launched into an anti-American tirade. She said, “You Americans always like to think that you have the perfect government and your people are always so perfect. Well then, why haven’t you had a woman president by now? You had a chance to vote for a woman vice-president and you didn’t do it… Well, I think you are going to be surprised when you get a black president very soon.”
The Americans expressed the opinion that, yes, there was nothing to prevent a black man or a black woman from being elected president. The right person, at the right time, could easily be elected. To which the woman responded, “What if I told you that you will have a black president very soon and he will be a Communist? Well, you will; and he will be a Communist.”
As her husband tried vainly to change the subject, one of the Americans said, “It sounds like you know something we don’t know.”
According to Fife, she replied, “Yes, it is true. This is not some idle talk. He is already born and he is educated and being groomed to be president right now. You will be impressed to know that he has gone to the best schools of Presidents. He is what you call ‘Ivy League.’ You don’t believe me, but he is real and I even know his name. His name is Barack. His mother is white and American and his father is black from Africa. That’s right, a chocolate baby! And he’s going to be your President.”
I tried several times to locate Tom Fife so that I could ask him to confirm or deny the story attributed to him, but with no success. However, a four-part interview — Part 1, Part 2, Part 3 and Part 4 — with Fife, by Jeff Rense, has recently surfaced:
Fast forward to the late ’80s or early ’90s, when Obama would have been in his late 20s. Postman Allen Hulton regularly delivered mail to the home of Bill Ayers’ parents in Glen Ellyn, Ill., a Chicago suburb. The Ayers family was quite proud that they had helped finance the education of a young black foreign student. One day, Hulton met the young man, who he claims was Barack Obama, on the sidewalk in front of the Ayers home. And when Hulton asked the young man about his plans for the future, he replied that he was going to be president of the United States.
Fast forward once again some ten or twelve years when a young black Illinois state senator first emerged as a rising star in the Democratic Party. On June 11, 2003, during the 108th Congress, Rep. Victor Snyder (D-AR) introduced House Joint Resolution 59, a proposal for a constitutional amendment to eliminate the “natural born Citizen” requirement of Article II, Section 1 of the Constitution. The Snyder proposal was followed by H.J.R. 67, introduced on Sept. 3, 2003, by Rep. John Conyers, a radical black Democrat from Michigan. The Conyers amendment would have required only that presidents be U.S. citizens for 20 years, eliminating the “natural born” requirement. Few members could see the need to amendment the Constitution. Both proposals died in committee.
However, on July 27, 2004, an unknown young black man, Illinois state senator Barack Obama, delivered the keynote address at the Democratic National Convention, creating immediate speculation among Democrats that he might one day be a candidate for president.
Just over five months later, on Jan. 4, 2005, early in the 109th Congress, Representative 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, Representative Snyder made yet another attempt, introducing H.J.R. 42, containing language identical to his H.J.R. 59 of the 108th Congress.
Since the “natural born Citizen” requirement of the U.S. Constitution had never before created a shortage of presidential candidates, why did the congressmen feel the need to overturn the desire of the Founders that all presidents must be “natural born” citizens? Perhaps we should be asking them what they knew about Obama’s lack of eligibility, and when did they know it?
Barack Obama was elected to the United States Senate in November 2004 and was sworn in during the first week of January 2005. Within weeks after taking the oath as a U.S. Senator, he launched into a campaign for the 2008 Democratic presidential nomination.
His principal opponent for the Democratic nomination was U.S. Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-NY), but the powerful Clinton political machine was no match for the Chicago Democratic machine and on Aug. 27, 2008, a man with no real world experience… literally no experience of any kind… and who failed to meet the “natural born Citizen” requirement of Article 2, Section 1 of the Constitution, was handed the Democratic presidential nomination.
However, as the convention drew to a close on Aug. 28, 2008, the chairman and secretary of the convention, Nancy Pelosi and Alice Travis Germond, respectively, had one final task to perform. It was their job to prepare certifications for all fifty state election boards, officially certifying the names, home addresses, and constitutional eligibility of the party’s candidates.
The certification sent only to the State of Hawaii, pursuant to Hawaii Revised Statutes §11-113 which requires that all certifications must contain eligibility language, read as follows: “THIS IS TO CERTIFY that at the National Convention of the Democrat Party of the United States of America, held in Denver, Colorado on August 25 though (sic) 28, 2008, the following were duly nominated candidates of said Party for President and Vice President of the United States respectively and that the following candidates for President and Vice President of the United States are legally qualified to serve under the provisions of the United States Constitution.”
The remaining forty-nine states received the following certification: “THIS IS TO CERTIFY that at the National Convention of the Democrat Party of the United States of America, held in Denver, Colorado on August 25 though (sic) 28, 2008, the following were duly nominated as candidates of said Party for President and Vice President of the United States respectively:”
Affixed were the names and home addresses of Barack Obama and Joe Biden. The documents were signed by Pelosi and Germond, chairman and secretary, respectively, of the 2008 Democratic National Convention, and notarized by Shalifa A. Williamson.
The phrase, “… and that the following candidates for President and Vice President of the United States are legally qualified to serve under the provisions of the United States Constitution” was purposely omitted. Other than that, all of the documents were absolutely identical… even to the misspelling of the word “through” in the second line of the certifications.
So when did Pelosi first learn that Barack Obama was ineligible to serve as president of the United States? And who else was involved in the conspiracy to make him president?
And now, as the greatest nation in recorded history rushes headlong toward fiscal ruin, that same community organizer from Chicago who hoodwinked enough voters, or stole enough votes, to get himself elected to two terms in the White House, stands alone with the power to either save or to bring down our nation.
As he sits across the desk from Speaker John Boehner (R-OH), refusing to make real spending cuts and refusing to discuss entitlements reform, it is quite clear that he has no desire to prevent our country from plunging over the “fiscal cliff.” Instead, as the committed communist he is, he would much prefer to see the capitalist system destroyed, and all of its adherents along with it. In the dark crevices where communists gather around the world, they are drinking to his health and cheering him on. This is known as “payback” time. Am I wrong?
