“WE ARE ALWAYS AMERICANS FIRST”
by Sharon Rondeau
What you won’t hear from this campaign or this party is the kind of politics that uses religion as a wedge, and patriotism as a bludgeon-that sees our opponents not as competitors to challenge, but enemies to demonize. Because we may call ourselves Democrats and Republicans, but we are Americans first. We are always Americans first.
But is Obama an American?
Has he “demonized” his enemies after all?
Military veterans have been unable to obtain medical care to the point where many have died awaiting an appointment. A supervisor fired in the wake of the discovery involving falsification of documentation regarding appointments has sued to regain her position after admitting to taking bribes.
Rather than treating Americans as if they come “first,” people from other lands who Obama sees as “refugees,” “immigrants,” and “undocumented” persons deserving to enter or remain in the country and draw benefits from American taxpayers have been granted a high priority.
After announcing “executive actions” to prevent the deportation of millions of illegal aliens on November 20, 2014, Obama declared that a “White House Task Force on New Americans” would be created by “presidential memorandum” to implement a “plan on immigrant and refugee integration.”
The person leading the effort, Cecilia Munoz, was an active member of The National Council of La Raza, a Latino group which receives millions in federal taxpayer dollars to conduct voter registrations and “immigration services.” The organization opposes “oppressive and discriminatory deportation policies.”
A Hillary Clinton campaign operative in 2008 wanted to emphasize Obama’s “lack of American roots” during the Democrat primary season.
As various sources reported before 2008 that Obama was born in Kenya or Indonesia, it is an open question whether or not he is actually an American citizen. On April 27, 2011, the White House posted what it claimed was a scan of a certified copy of his long-form birth certificate obtained through special arrangement with the Hawaii Department of Health (HDOH). Almost immediately, however, computer professionals declared it fraudulent.
In September of that year, Maricopa County Sheriff Joseph M. Arpaio asked his Cold Case Posse to perform a preliminary analysis of the image to determine whether or not his constituents, 250 of whom had expressed concerns that their votes in the 2012 presidential election would be disenfranchised, had reason to be concerneed should the image prove to be a forgery.
On March 1, 2012, Cold Case Posse lead investigator Mike Zullo and Arpaio gave a press conference in which they reported that after approximately six months of investigation, the long-form birth certificate image had been found to be a “computer-generated forgery.” The same was said of Obama’s purported Selective Service registration form, which was mailed to various requesters under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) beginning in early 2009.
A second presser provided more details as to the posse’s conclusions.
Arpaio is now facing potential criminal charges for continuing to conduct patrols aimed at identifying illegal aliens within Maricopa County in violation of a federal judge’s 2011 order which some believe was issued to allow “amnesty for illegal aliens.”
On June 12, 2008, an image of a “Certification of Life Birth” was posted on FighttheSmears purported to be proof that Obama was born in Hawaii and therefore qualified for the presidency. In May 2009, then-White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs claimed that the “short-form” image was Obama’s only available birth record.
On April 27, 2011, the short-form birth certificate image was posted on the White House website in a different color scheme than the original green background with black print.
As The Post & Email has reported, when Obama first sought the White House, he was quoted by two USA Today reporters to have said that “his campaign for the presidency ‘will send a wonderful message to young people of color and to immigrants around the country’ if successful.”
Prior to the 2008 election, Obama was described as “an immigrant” by former New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson and “born in Indonesia” by MSNBC’s Chris Matthews. Michelle Obama has called Kenya her husband’s “home country.”
Iowa Representative Steve King has publicly observed that Obama did not have “an American experience” while growing up.
The day after the 2008 election, former Kenyan Ambassador to the United States Peter Ogego elatedly told two Michigan radio hosts that Obama’s birthplace in Kenya “is well-known.” Ogego quickly backtracked on his statement, perhaps after realizing that a birth on foreign soil would likely render Obama ineligible for the presidency. “I don’t know” where Obama was born, he then said.
Article II, Section 1, clause 5 of the U.S. Constitution requires the president to be a “natural born Citizen.” Zullo has stated on the “Freedom Friday” radio show that the posse has studied possible motives in the White House’s release of a forgery instead of an authentic paper document.
Obama’s Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has arguably demonized climate-change skeptics by threatening to press racketeering charges through state attorneys general for their difference of opinion with the current regime’s global warming initiatives and claims.
Beginning at least in 2010 but perhaps earlier, Tea Party, “conservative,” religious, anti-illegal-immigration and Second-Amendment groups were “targeted” by Obama’s IRS for extraordinary scrutiny and questioning after applying for tax-exempt status.
In July of last year, Judicial Watch reported that “the IRS used donor lists to tax-exempt organizations to target those donors for audits.” Former Delaware Republican U.S. Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell, former 2016 presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson, and others expressing opposing views to that of the Obama regime have reported being audited by the IRS.
In 2012, the National Organization for Marriage (NOM) learned that its list of donors had been leaked to the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), which is heavily-funded by billionaire leftist George Soros. In August 2013, congressional hearings about the IRS’s activity toward certain groups resulted in the Republican Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee stating that testifying “witnesses represented ‘but a small sample of Americans who have been treated differently and discriminated against by their government because of their individual, deeply held beliefs. There are many, many more.’”
In an editorial published two months after his testimony to the same committee, NOM Chairman of the Board John C. Eastman wrote:
It was March of 2012. Marriage was on the ballot in 5 states that year: North Carolina in May; and Maine, Maryland, Minnesota, and Washington in November. Those seeking to redefine marriage had an uphill battle.
Thirty-two states had voted by large margins since 2004 to reaffirm the traditional definition of marriage, and no state had voted to approve same-sex ‘marriage.’ But campaigns of intimidation and harassment against donors to the traditional marriage cause and its flagship organization, the National Organization for Marriage (NOM), had begun to take its toll.
The Human Rights Campaign (HRC), NOM’s principal opponent in these political battles, even had a website, “NOM Exposed,” designed to publicly identify NOM and its supporters and donors so they and their businesses could be harassed.
Last June, despite multiple states’ constitutional amendments banning same-sex “marriage,” the US Supreme Court reasoned that a marriage could take place between any two consenting adults. Although Chief Justice John Roberts disagreed with the majority opinion, on two occasions his was the vote that upheld Obama’s “Affordable Care Act,” otherwise known as “Obamacare,” which changed the way healthcare in the United States is financed.
In 2013, former National Security Agency (NSA) contractor Edward Snowden revealed that virtually all of Americans’ phone conversations and email traffic is collected by the executive-branch behemoth. Later, it was reported by The Wall Street Journal and other publications that the Obama regime spied on Germany’s prime minister, Angela Merkel; members of Congress; Israel-affiliated groups who opposed Obama’s “Iran nuclear deal;” and federal judges, Arpaio, Zullo and other Maricopa County residents by allegedly breaching bank accounts, computer and telephone systems.
Another former NSA contractor, Dennis Montgomery, claims to have information even more stunning than Snowden’s and has been granted two immunity agreements by the FBI. Montgomery has also conducted a forensic analysis of Obama’s long-form birth certificate.
Contrary to Obama’s June 3, 2008 pledge, some in the U.S. military are now recognized because of their personal preferences and “diversity.”
Journalists’ phone records and email accounts have been harvested by the U.S. Department of Justice under Obama purportedly to discover who within a government agency might have leaked sensitive information. After initially providing favorable coverage to Obama, the Associated Press’s chairman expressed outrage.
One of those whose phone and email records were collected was Fox News White House correspondent James Rosen.
On Twitter on Friday, the U.S. House Oversight and Government Reform Committee tweeted a clip from a CNN newscast anchored by Jake Tapper in which Tapper said that the excising of a portion of a video depicting a State Department press conference on negotiations with Iran should garner “outrage” from “every American.”
On December 2, 2013, Fox News reporter James Rosen asked State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki, “Is it the policy of the State Department where the preservation of the secrecy of secret negotiations is concerned to lie in order to achieve that goal?” Psaki responded, “There are times where diplomacy needs privacy in order to progress.”
That portion of the video was purposely removed, as Obama’s press secretary, Josh Earnest, and State Department spokesman John Kirby admitted on Thursday.
Tapper interpreted Psaki’s response to mean, “Sometimes governments need to deceive the press and the public to achieve goals.”
We received no response from either party.
“We have a right to know who lied to us and why,” Tapper concluded in the broadcast clip.
Last July, Tapper interviewed Arpaio, who mentioned his posse’s investigation of Obama’s long-form birth certificate and the results, but Tapper did not appear concerned over it.

Another Obama lie?
