33 QUESTIONS FOR THE PRESIDENT

 Mr. President,

You hold enormous power in this country, and in the world. But you are also an elected representative of the people of America. As an American, I have a right to know certain aspects of your personal and professional history, in order to feel secure that you do not hold divided loyalties with any other nations or any other ideology that is not compatible with the interests of all Americans and with the constitution of the U.S. After all, you are the president and if Americans do not have a right to know about you — then who?

This is not about party politics. This is about national security. It’s about trust. No other president in history has been shrouded in so much secrecy, especially one who claims to be so “transparent.”

I have some questions:

When you were five years old, you were adopted by Lolo Soetoro, a Muslim like your natural father. You moved to Indonesia where you attended interfaith schools and were registered as Barry Soetoro. Your religion was registered as “Islam.” You remained there until age ten, at which time you returned to Hawaii to live with your maternal grandparents.

Question 1: When and where did you legally change your name back to Barack H. Obama?

Question 2: Did you ever, in fact, legally change your name back to Barack Obama?

Question 3: When and where did you reinstate your American citizenship, after being an Indonesian citizen for four or five years? (Then again, was it ever reinstated?)

Question 4: When and where did you obtain a United States passport, after being an Indonesian citizen?

When you attended Occidental College in 1979 to 1981, you used the name Barry Soetoro, as you did throughout your childhood.

Question 5: Was Barry Soetoro, or is it still, your legal name?

Question 6: What identification papers did you present to Occidental College for registration, i.e., passport, birth certificate, driver’s license, etc?

Question 7: Why do you purposely prevent public access to those school records?

Question 8: How and why did you happen to secure two roommates at Occidental who were Muslim men from Pakistan? (With rare exception, Muslims generally room with Muslims only.)

When you were 20 years old, you traveled to Pakistan with your Muslim friends, when Pakistan was experiencing serious uprisings and was considered under siege.

Question 9: What country’s passport did you use for international travel at that time?

Question 10: Was that passport under the name of Barry Soetoro?

Question 11: What was the purpose of your travel to Pakistan?

Question 12: How did you fund this travel venture?

According to records, and your autobiography, you enrolled in Columbia University 1981 to 1983, where you obtained a degree in Political Science. However, private investigators working for attorney, Orly Taitz, have obtained your attendance records at Columbia, which indicate you only attended Columbia from September of 1982 to May of 1983. (See link below – Item #27 of FAC lawsuit allegations)

Question 13: Are these attendance records inaccurate? If so, how?

Question 14: If they are accurate, where were you and what were you doing during the missing year between Occidental and Columbia?

Question 15: Could this be why so many people from your Political Science class, graduating in 1983, never knew you or saw you there?

Question 16: How was your Columbia University schooling funded, and by whom?

Question 17: Why do you refuse to allow America and/or the media in general, to view your enrollment records from Columbia University?

Percy Sutton, renowned Harlem attorney and the former president of Manhattan Borough of New York, publicly stated in 2008, that in 1988, he was approached by Radical Islamist, Dr. Khalid al-Monsour — a close advisor to Saudi sheik, al Walid bin Talal — to write a support letter of recommendation for Barack Obama to help him get into Harvard Law School. (See link, below)

Question 18: How and by whom did you fund your law school at Harvard?

Question 19: Did you receive support from any foreign sources?

Question 20: What were your relationships with Mr. Al Monsour and Sheik bin Talal?

Question 21: Why do you refuse to authorize release of your enrollment records at Harvard?

Question 22: Can you explain why your Social Security Number was applied for and secured in Connecticut, a state in which you never resided?

Question 23: Can you explain why your Social Security Number 042-68-4424, belonged to another person, Thomas Wood, who did live in Connecticut and died at age 19, between 1977 and 1979?

Question 24: When you applied for the bar exam in Illinois, you swore that you had never used any other name than Barack Obama. Is that true and did you knowingly lie under oath?

It was not until your presidential campaign was well under way when the character of the church you were attending for 20 years, and its pastor’s anti-American views, became public.

Question 25: Despite attending Reverend Jeremiah Wright’s church for 20 years, giving financial support and considering your close association with the racist pastor, should we believe that you never had an inkling that he held such radical views?

Question 26: Did you become a Christian because you accepted Jesus Christ as the son of God, or because it was politically expedient for your future ambitions?

Question 27: If your birth verification should not be an issue, why do you spend money on  legal teams to prevent the certified record from being made public?

The computer generated Certification of Live Birth (COLB)which your associates have posted on line, and which some media claims to be valid, fails to provide birthing facts generally present on all American birth certificates. Thus, it begs many questions:

Question 27: Why does the COLB fail to name the hospital you were born in?

Question 28: Why does the COLB fail to name the doctor in attendance?

Question 29: Why is the COLB unsigned/certified by any one in attendance?

Question 30: Why does the COLB fail to denote address of the parents?

Question 31: Why is the father’s race listed as “African” when, in fact, African is not recognized as a race on any census in America, especially in 1961?

Question 32: Why is the COLB generated on a computer, when computers were not in use in 1961, (your birth year) or for many years thereafter?

Some say it’s possible to legally obtain a Hawaiian Certification of Live Birth, even though you were born somewhere else.

Question 33: Is it true that your half sister, Maya Soetoro, has a Hawaiian COLB also, though she readily admits she was born in Indonesia? If so, that would explain how a person born elsewhere can still obtain a Certification of Live Birth in Hawaii.

If your presidency is to be so “transparent,” please answer the aforementioned questions so that Americans will feel confident that you have no hidden agenda, that you are as honest as you say, that your are wholly American and we can focus our attentions on important issues, domestic and foreign, without these constant distractions which only one person can clear up: That’s you, Mr. President.

UNDERSTANDING THE RISE OF DONALD TRUMP

The Donald Trump phenomenon really has little to do with republican versus democratic politics. His unexpected and meteoric rise in the polls among republican hopefuls can be attributed to four elements:

1) He’s super rich and (conceivably) cannot be bought.

2) He confronts issues no one else in politics is willing to risk.

3) He’s a proven commodity by virtue of successful business savvy.

4) He’s not a product of politics.

Billionaire, Ross Perot, ran on a third party ticket in 1992 and garnered 19 percent of the vote, and that was after a decline in the polls from dropping out of the race temporarily. Had it not been for that, he may have won the presidency. Perot’s appeal was much the same as Donald Trump today, candor, confrontation, guts and independent wealth.

Americans are sick of politics-as-usual, with candidates essentially bought-off by corporate lobbyists, campaign donors, unions, special interest organizations and ethnic voting blocks. Like Perot, Trump’s straightforward, undiplomatic style is refreshing to millions of potential voters, especially when he dares to direct his attention toward China and Saudi Arabia as major problems in the world that soon need to be resolved to secure America’s economic future.

He points out: America First. People like that. Trump makes no bones about the need to return jobs to Americans instead of Taiwanese, Filipinos and Indians, and to reinvigorate the manufacturing industry here on our own soil. He talks about securing borders and curbing illegal immigration which past presidential administrations have failed at miserably. He has fresh ideas for eliminating the debt, including a special tax on rich, a democratic stand. Despite his party affiliation, he openly excoriates the republican Bush administration for pitfalls which helped to lead America to the sad state of affairs we now experience.

Political correctness be damned, Trump claims that the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan should be over with. America should regain global respect and confront our would-be enemies from a position of strength. And, we should not be appeasing dictators.

While Trump talks about a myriad of issues and ways to confront them that are different than the same-old rhetoric, the media chooses to showcase his stand on the current president’s refusal to produce certified evidence that he was, in fact, born in America. This is an example of one man willing to say aloud what most people are thinking, but don’t dare ask because of the dreaded label: Birther.

A recent NY Times poll found that 57 percent of Americans believe Obama was born in the U.S. Translated, that means 43 percent have doubts… about the legitimacy of our own president. That’s worth clarifying, which the president could choose to do, but does not.

I don’t know if I would vote for Donald Trump in 2012, and neither do most. Egomania and flamboyancy isn’t a good trait for the Oval Office. Then again, what human being would ever want to be president who doesn’t have a huge ego? But democrats and republicans alike would do well to take his candidacy serious, because people will gravitate to a political prospect who doesn’t talk out of two sides of his mouth, as most politicians do.

That’s the attraction.

Here’s a couple articles that clarify Trump’s stand on issues:

MUSLIM WOMAN SUPPORTS FRENCH BAN ON BURKAS

This is about a distinguished physician, author and Muslim woman living in the U.S. who supports the controversial ban on burkas and facial coverings as imposed by the gutsy Sarkozy government in France.

Dr. Qanta Ahmed is the author of In the Land of Invisible Women: A Female Doctor’s Journey in the Saudi Kingdom. She is a board certified sleep disorders specialist at Winthrop University Hospital in Mineola, New York and Associate Professor of Medicine at the State University of New York (Stony Brook). Previously, she has practiced medicine at the National Health Service in the United Kingdom and in the National Guard Health Affairs in Riyadh, in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and also at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston, SC.
In her writings, Dr. Ahmed identifies herself as a secular, or heterodox, Muslim who decries the culture of abayas and burkas. In this article (linked below) she talks about the history of veiling woman and the sense of oppression it imposes on Muslim women who yearn to be free and equal. Beware, her writings will cause some to reach for a dictionary, but her message is refreshing and pragmatic. Big words don’t impress a Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobic like me.

Too bad there are not more Muslims in this country like Dr. Ahmed and Dr. Zuhdi Jasser, of Arizona, with the courage to speak out in favor of reform and dignity for all, with a willingness to assimilate into American life. If the majority were of her ilk, the minority radicals could be better repressed from their jihad frame of mind.

Here’s her article:

If only for reasons of security, I’m of the opinion that all free nations of the western world would do well to follow the lead of France in this issue. Would certainly make Juan Williams feel better on airplanes.

ISLAMOPHOBIA VS JEWPHOBIA

 Are we a nation of Islamophobics?

I hope so.

Our enemies are counting on Americans being docile, stupid, overly tolerant, accepting, blind and unafraid. If we’re not afraid, they will win. Simple as that.

Islamists scare the crap out of me, and they should you. After all, if the radical side of Islam in America has their way, our granddaughters will be wearing garments to cover their faces and sold off to papa’s friends as child brides, aka: female slaves in the year 2050. Sharia and Islam are inseparable. Let’s not ever forget that.

For people who are not afraid of the intent of radical Islam, it’s time for a reality check. How much of the Islam world did we see in the news twenty years ago? How many mosques were here in the U.S. twenty years ago? How much did we read about terms like Sharia law? Taqiyya? Koranic verses? Honor killings? Considering the progress of the past twenty years in America, imagine the next twenty years…or forty…or sixty.

What’s disturbing, is that there are Americans — albeit well meaning — who see no threat. They say people like me are blowing it all out of proportion. People like me are: Islamophobic!

Guilty!

The world of Islam would have us believe that the worst people in the world are — what else — Jews.

Let one Muslim be offended in the streets of New York, or victimized by a hate crime, and it’s big news. We fear riots in the streets. We fear “offending” Muslims because they… uh… they… uh…(whisper now) have a tendency toward KILLING PEOPLE AND BLOWING PEOPLE UP! That’s why we’re afraid. After all, they’ve only done this 16,000 times, or more, around the world, in the last ten years. They’ve even had a clandestine agent pretend to be professional U.S. military officer who would die for Allah by shooting forty of our finest soldiers, killing thirteen of them…within the confines of our own military base.

When all the signals were prevalent that Nidal Hassan was a radical, U.S. hating Muslim, the Department of Defense did NOTHING about it, except promote him. That is the classic example of how political correctness will bode the death of America in general. Meanwhile, our president said to all of us: “Don’t jump to conclusions.”

Feel better?

And we’re supposed to have confidence in our government? We’re supposed respect the judgement of our highest leaders?

Please.

Still, there is more news coverage about a “hate crime” toward a Muslim, than any other category of victim, because it makes news and stirs the pot. Nevertheless, to the media’s chagrin, hate crimes toward Jews are ten times more prevalent than toward Muslims, but we hear little about them. The most recent Stats from the FBI indicate that Jews suffer 72 percent of hate crimes, while Muslims suffer a little over 8 percent.

Click here: Victims – Hate Crime Statistics, 2009

So, who’s afraid of the big bad Jew? How many Jews have strapped bombs to their bodies to randomly kill innocent people? How many Jewish mothers have kissed their sons goodbye minutes before they martyr them selves? How many Jews are rioting in the streets? How many Jews have every threatened to conquer the world?

Jews in America stand at about 6.5 million. Muslims are about the same, and growing, though there is no census for religious population counts in the U.S. The world of Islam is 1.4 billion. The world of Jewry is 1 percent of that. ONE PERCENT.

Anti-Semitism still reeks within this country, but there is no outcry. Jew haters like Director Oliver Stone, Mel Gibson, and journalist Helen Thomas have been lauded and would be welcomed guests on The View and other TV interview shows. The hatred they breathe is open and accepted. Gibson and Stone are still embraced as Hollywood celebrities. Here, about Oliver Stone:

In this report by Noel Sheppard, scroll down to the short video of a Washington D.C. Imam spewing hatred in the streets toward Jews and Israel in general. What Israeli supporting Rabbi or any anti-Muslim could do this and get away with it without an uproar?

Kids throughout the mid-east and in the Muslim world, and in America, are taught from their days in the crib, that Jews must be hated, and destroyed, and that it is God’s will. It’s not the kids fault. It’s just part of the indoctrination process.

Hating Jews is part of the Islamic creed within the teachings and war plans of the Muslim Brotherhood. It’s in the Koran:

Surah: 5:51 – Oh you who believe, do not take the Jews and the Christians for friends; they are friends of each other; and whoever amongst you takes them for a friend, and surely he is one of them. Allah does not guide the unjust people.

Surah: 2:65 – And certainly you have known those among you who exceeded the limits of the Sabbath, so We say to them: Be apes, despised and hated.

The Hamas Charter, Article 7, concludes with the excerpt from the Hadith:

The Last Hour would not come unless the Muslims will fight against the Jews and the Muslims would kill them until the Jews would hide themselves behind a stone or a tree and a stone or a tree would say: `Muslim, or the servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me; come and kill him’; but the tree Gharkad would not say, for it is the tree of the Jews.’ (Sahih Muslim, Book 40, Number 6985

This is taught to 14 year-old boys in Gaza, where they’ve been raining rockets upon Israeli land for five years, without a peep of condemnation from the worthless United Nations.

So, folks, if you feel a tinge of Islamophobia, don’t be ashamed. Consider yourself normal. Because radical Islam is the greatest real threat to the future of a democratic America there has ever been, and that includes Nazism.

 

AMERICAN IDOL: LOST INTEGRITY

 

Unless you’re a great lover of musical talent, or you’re a fan of talent competitions like American Idol, this piece won’t interest you.

I was a fan. No more.

I started watching “Idol” on a regular basis three years ago. Though much of the show is fluff and inane dialogue among judges, some of whom have not been qualified to be a judge, it was still entertaining when we would see young men and women giving their all, singing their hearts out in pursuit of a dream.

In Season 7, Syesha Mercado was clearly the best talent on the show, behind her, possible the boyish David Archuleta and his wonderful vocal range. The winner emerged as David Cook, fine young man with a sexy beard and a guitar, with a mediocre voice and an ordinary talent. Basically, he fit the mold that turns on young voters, a cookie cutter image, if you will. Because the final twelve are elected by millions of votes from the viewing audience (the judge’s have no say-so), it occurred to me that the greatest majority of voters are teenage girls and young women. Ergo, cute boy with guitar.

In Season 8, Adam Lambert was the Secretariat next to the rest of the field, far and away the great talent. Despite his in-your-face, gay flamboyancy, no one could argue that his command of the stage and his versatility in various singing genre was unmatchable, probably by anyone ever in the history of American Idol. Yet, he stood on stage only to receive second prize, when the winner was announced: Kris Allen, cute boy with guitar with mediocre voice. Cookie cutter.

In Season 9, (2010) Crystal Bowersox, a major talent who should have won, didn’t have the right stuff to convince the Idol voters she was more deserving than…who else? Cookie cutter, Lee Dewyze, cute boy with guitar and mediocre voice.

Last night, an entertainment tragedy occurred when Pia Toscano was voted off, a tragedy not only for Pia, but for the integrity of American Idol. Again, it was all predictable.

2011 has been a fine year for the final twelve, compared to years past. The talent is superb. The original twelve have (so far) been pared down to nine, with another kid eliminated each week based on popular voting. Ironically, each week, the eliminated have been girls, not boys.

Do girls vote for girls? Do any of the female singers fit in the cookie cutter?

I know a little about music, having been my other hat since the age of six. So, I write from a position of some knowledge. The girls eliminated so far have been wonderful, just as good or better than most of the male contestants. But none stood out more than Pia Toscano, whose incredible range and phenomenal poise clearly made her the Secretariat-like front runner among all contestants. She is what stars are made of. Nevertheless, the bobby-soxer voting majority put her at the bottom of the remaining list of nine contestants, losing to cute boys like Paul McDonald and Stefano Langone, cookie cuts, each.

I never saw a judge’s panels so shocked when the announcement came.

I hope the music industry showers Pia Toscano with contracts and records deals, regardless who wins in the end. She deserves it, much like the case with Adam Lambert, who emerged as the major Vegas star, while the winner of season 8, Kris Allen, is barely known.

My days of watching Idol are over until the show’s system is modified to give equal weight to the votes of the judges, much like Dancing With The Stars, and other competitions. My sensibilities toward altruism makes me believe that the best should win. And that’s not going to happen on this show.
