“A MALIGNANT CANCER CALLED ‘CAREER POLITICS'”
by Sharon Rondeau
(Oct. 13, 2011) — The Post & Email recently learned of a presidential candidate who plans to challenge the constitutional eligibility of Barack Hussein Obama to hold the office of President of the United States. Mr. John A. Dummett of Forest Hill, CA is running as a Republican and describes himself as “conservative to the core” and “a constitutional conservative.” He advocates abolishing the Internal Revenue Service and repealing the Sixteenth Amendment, upon which The Post & Email has reported previously and which has been described as a “powerful criminal conspiracy.”
Mr. Dummett was a guest on an internet radio broadcast entitled “Restoring America” on several occasions. He has also been a guest on Paul Revere Radio and Radio Liberty. Dummett told The Post & Email that he will again be a guest on the Paul Revere Radio show hosted by Rick Johnson and will also be appearing on Dr. James David Manning’s show, The Manning Report, in the near future.
Dummett stated that his primary goal is “to restore the Constitution to its original form and intent and to return power to the States where it rightfully belongs.” He believes that “We the People are the only entity out there that can accomplish this.”
Regarding the Obama eligibility question, Dummett said, “The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has tentatively said by dicta that a registered candidate for President of the United States would have standing in a federal court to force Obama to produce a document we all know he possibly cannot.”
Dummett told us that he had not been involved in politics until the 2008 presidential election. For his campaign, he has developed a list of 28 principles with accompanying essays which reflect his views of the Founding Fathers’ beliefs and intents when drafting the U.S. Constitution and emphasize Dummett’s assertion that the people were intended to hold the power over elected officials.
We asked, and Mr. Dummett answered, the following questions:
Q. Given what you’ve said about your apolitical status up until recently, what made you file as a presidential candidate, and why do you think you are qualified?
A. For as long as I can remember, I had always wanted to get involved in politics. When I was in the sixth grade, our class took a field trip to Sacramento, which is the state capital of California. Ronald Reagan was the governor. When we got to the Capitol building, a friend and I slipped away from the rest of the group to do a little exploring on our own. Back in the sixties, security was not like it is today. My pal and I walked into what we thought was an empty room. It wasn’t. We had actually walked into an office being used by Ronald Reagan. For around twenty minutes Ronald Reagan spoke with us and asked us questions about what we wanted to do when we grew up and other questions about how we understood what government was all about. Our teacher finally hunted us down and we did get in hot water, but we got to have a once-in-a-lifetime experience talking with Ronald Reagan one-on-one. I believe from that moment on, I considered myself a Conservative Republican inasmuch as I understood what conservatism was. As far as wanting to be a Republican in my mind at that age, republicanism equates with representative government. How much I have learned over the years.
The events that actually made me decide to run for actual office occurred during the election of 2008. Several years prior to that I was slowly coming to the conclusion that the People were no longer being represented. The candidates the Republicans and Democrats put up for us to vote for did not seem to differ much in the vision they had for America. I was completely convinced that the two major parties were part of an oligarchy. To this oligarchy it was more important to remain in power than to do what was best for the United States.
I watched the 2008 Presidential election very closely. I was extremely disappointed when I learned that John McCain was going to be the choice of the Republican Party to run for President. I pointed out earlier that representation of the People was taking a seat farther back in the bus. The candidates the parties were offering were becoming weaker as leaders and more of the type of person who could be easily controlled by the party. As far as I was concerned, John McCain was not the strongest candidate out there for the Conservatives. But like the last few Presidencies after Ronald Reagan, the pool that I considered strong patriotic candidates was progressively getting weaker. It always seemed as if I was voting for the lesser of the two evils instead of voting for the best candidate. My opinion was solidified when McCain nominated Sarah Palin. At fist I thought to myself, “Palin who?” The first couple of speeches she gave, I thought she sounded okay, but then the gaffes started coming out and it was clear as a bell that the duo the Republican Party was promoting was an exercise in futility. I did resign myself to support McCain and Palin because there was no way on Earth that I was not going to exercise my franchise.
I then turned my attention to the Democratic nomination process. At the time the most recognizable candidate out there in my mind was Hillary Clinton. I did perceive that the Democratic nominee would be between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. One day I was watching some news coverage of Hillary Clinton at a campaign stop. A statement she made piqued my interest. What she said, and I am paraphrasing: “Barack Obama was not eligible to be President.” To me, words mean things as they should to everyone. What amazed me was that very few people picked up on the word which Hillary used. She used “not eligible” as opposed to “not qualified.” To me, this meant that Barack Obama did not meet the eligibility requirements to be President.
While attending San Diego State University for fun, I took several 500-level courses in Constitutional History. These courses dealt primarily with Constitutional Law, so I was familiar with Article II, Section I, Clause V in which the eligibility requirements are spelled out for President of the United States. After making sure I heard what I did and saw what Barack Obama was doing to prevent anyone from obtaining access to any record that could shine any light on his eligibility status, I came to the conclusion that the Democratic Party was considering allowing an unqualified person to seek the White House.
I started to dig into the background of Barack Obama, and the more I researched, the more I became convinced that Obama was not eligible to be President of the United States. This would not have scared me so much except that it was becoming obvious that Obama was going to be the nominee of the Democratic Party. After Obama won, it was perfectly clear that a real-life Manchurian Candidate had been elected. The poor performance of John McCain in running against Obama led me to believe that not only did McCain have no interest in winning the Presidency, but by the actions of the Republican Party, neither did they.
After witnessing what I consider to be a bloodless coup in the election of 2008, I found myself no longer being able to sit on the sidelines and continue voting for the lesser of two evils. I understood that the government which I thought represented the People of the United States no longer existed, and if our original form of government was ever going to be restored, the restoration would never be undertaken by the oligarchy that actually rules this nation. Being elected to Congress would not do because a Congressman must serve many years to gain the power needed to cause change. If the Constitution of the United States is ever going to be restored to its original form and intent, and power returned to the States where it rightfully belongs, the Presidency must be won. The Presidency does not have to compete with 99 other Senators to get the job done. Because of this reason I know the only way our nation stands a chance of righting the wrongs perpetrated by self-interested politicians in Washington is to be elected to the White House. There I can use the Bully Pulpit and go right to the people with all the issues that threaten this nation’s sovereignty, freedom and liberty. This is where Ronald Reagan’s influence comes into play, for any time Ronald Reagan could not get Congress to see that it was not acting in the best interests of the People of the United States, he went directly to the People to plead his case. Even a Congress controlled by an oligarchy has no defense to thwart the will of 330,000,000 American patriots.
Q. What is your current occupation?
A. My current occupation is with the State of California, Department of Fish and Game. I am a Staff Programmer Analyst. My primary job is to build business applications which allow the state of California to monitor and oversee its natural resources. The work I do ensures that no foreign nation can come within our territorial waters and consume our ocean resources as if they were vacuuming a dirty rug. The applications I build also monitor the use of our natural resources to help determine their best use and to procure ways which will ensure that those resources will be sustainable, healthy and available for future Californians and citizens of the United States of America to enjoy.
Q. When did you first hear of the questions surrounding Barack Obama’s constitutional eligibility for the presidency? What actions did you take, if any, in that regard?
A. I answered this question in part in question one. What I can add here is to tell you what my intentions are in regard to exposing Barack Obama for what he is and what he is not.
In early May of this year, Orly Taitz and Gary Kreep appeared in court attempting to force the eligibility issue surrounding the election of Barack Obama. Orly is trying to connect the illegal use of a dead person’s social security number to Barack Obama. What Orly fails to realize is there are only two entities which can show harm and therefore gain standing in federal court to charge Obama with a crime. The first it the actual dead person who used to own the social security number in question. I am sure you can see that this is a dead end, pardon the pun. The other entity which could gain standing is the Social Security Administration (SSA) itself. Considering that it is the President of the United States who appoints the head of the Social Security Administration, the chances of its bringing charges against Barack Obama are even lower than a dead man doing so.
Gary Kreep is pursuing Obama in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals by representing Wiley Drake and Alan Keyes. It is Mr. Kreep’s contention that Drake and Keyes have standing because they were harmed in the last election because Barack Obama was not eligible to be President in the first place. The courts threw out the case because the People had already spoken and a President was elected. What is interesting is what the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals said in dicta. The court has actually rendered a tentative opinion that a currently registered Federal Elections Commission candidate for President would have standing to force Barack Obama to produce a document which we all know he can’t possibly produce.
The long-form birth certificate that Obama wagged in our faces on national television is a fraudulent document. I am a computer programmer with over twenty years of experience in building computer applications, and just by glancing at the document presented on national television, I could see it was an obvious fake. With the tentative dicta opinion of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals working on my side, a nationally-known “birther attorney,” who must remain anonymous for the moment, has agreed to represent me in federal court to force Barack Obama to produce any and all documents that can prove that he is even a citizen of the United States, let alone eligible to be President of the United States. Several ardent supporters of mine have come together to raise the necessary court costs that my case will incur. The site is independent of my political campaign and any donations are completely separated from my campaign donations. They will be specifically used to the penny to pay for the incidental court costs in going after Obama’s exposure as being a usurper. I am the only registered FEC Presidential candidate who is openly calling on the exposure of a usurper, and once exposed, to also call for the indictment, arrest, trial and conviction of Barack Obama whom I consider a usurper and ineligible to be President of the United States. If this is accomplished, the election of 2008 will be null and void, and every law, executive order, appointment or international treaty will also be null and void.
I have stood up and said that I will risk life and limb to restore our Constitution to its original form and intent and will return power to the States where it actually belongs. I will also restore the balance of power among the three branches of government and finally do what every elected official in this nation is supposed to do, which is to defend and protect the Constitution of the United States and to represent the People of the United States as our Founding Fathers had intended it to be.
Q. Do you think most Americans are aware that there is a question about Obama’s qualifications under Article II?
A. It is my opinion that the majority of the American people are aware that there is a Presidential eligibility problem with Barack Obama. However, the mainstream media are willing accomplices with the oligarchy that rules this nation by obfuscating what the truth is surrounding his ineligibility. Obama and his handlers have done a great job in prevaricating the truth. Unfortunately, most Americans are interested in politics only when we are actually in the process of electing the people who are to lead this nation. The rest of the time they do not care to be bothered. Every single elected and appointed official in this country is too vested in the fraud to do the right thing by exposing Obama as a usurper and nullifying the election of 2008.
There are several reasons why this is so. First, a lot of politicians have skeletons of their own to hide, and to expose Obama, it will leave them open to being exposed. Secondly, the people who lead this nation have all failed to do their duty to defend and protect the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic. They did this when half of the electorate had participated in several hundred or maybe even thousands of petition drives to see the actual proof of natural born citizenship status by any independent forensic document expert. Instead, Obama and the Democratic Party, and to one degree or another, the Republican Party, have spent millions in preventing any document from seeing the light of day that will show if Obama is eligible one way or the other to hold the Office of the Presidency. People must remember that it was the duty of the Democratic Party to vet Barack Obama by certifying that he met all of the eligibility requirements spelled out in the Constitution. At first, Nancy Pelosi did this, but when she realized that neither she nor anyone else could vouch for the fact that Obama was indeed eligible, she retracted the document that she and every other Democratic Party official had signed and only allowed one from the State of Hawaii to serve as the Document needed to vet Barack Obama.
The American electorate is notorious for the lack of a long-term memory. At one time, the Republican Party touted a Contract With America that promised to do the things we common ordinary citizens realize need to be done to set this nation on an even keel. Can anyone tell me which one of those provisions of the Contract With America actually was implemented? Newt Gingrich failed to implement a single provision of the Contract With America despite having control of both the House and the Senate as well as the Judiciary. As always, those we elected were more interested in preserving their own power and wealth, and the interests of the People were put by the wayside. As for this moment, any time anyone gets close to exposing Obama for the fraud he is causes the oligarchy that is in control of this nation to manufacture some national crisis.
In one instance, Donald Trump was used to help Obama skirt the eligibility issue. When Obama sensed that the birther movement was gaining steam, Donald Trump stepped up and raised the question of presidential eligibility himself. The electorate was led to believe that Trump was going to run for President, and his call to Obama to produce his long-form birth certificate was seen as a brave act of statesmanship and patriotism. A week later, Obama wagged some sort of document on television and said it was his long-form birth certificate. No independent forensic expert ever received a copy of that document for scrutiny.
When Donald Trump was approached by the mainstream media for his comments about the supposed release of Obama’s long-form birth certificate, what did he do? He stuttered and found it hard to express himself. Remember Trump and his Celebrity Apprentice program on television? One thing that Trump can never be accused of is being at a loss for words, but in this case, all he could manage was to ask about Obama’s use of a bogus Social Security number previously owned by a dead man. The Trump I know, and so should the rest of the electorate know, is the man who would have had a follow-up question if he was genuinely interested in exposing Barack Obama as a usurper. Any reasonable, critically-thinking person would have said, “Where is the proof?” This Trump did not do.
First of all, everyone should know that Trump never had any intention of running for President for one single reason: he would have to release his personal financial records. There is no way on Earth that he is ever going to do that. This alone should have raised the radar screens of most Americans, but it did not. Trump served to deflect the eligibility issue to take the heat off of Obama. Now the heat is turning up again. What distraction will occur next? Some think that Trump helped Obama because of some deal one of Obama’s cronies had with Trump to build a casino in one of Trump’s buildings. In today’s climate of corruption, I don’t put anything past career politicians and the oligarchy that rules this nation. I am convinced that my effort to expose Obama will be successful because I do not belong to that oligarchy, nor do I owe any special interest group in this nation other than the People of the United States. This is the major difference. A common ordinary patriotic person is this nation’s only chance to restore the damage done by the crooks who rule over it.
Q. How do you believe “natural born Citizen” is properly defined?
A. A Natural Born Citizen was defined and used by our Founding Fathers in our Constitution during the period of enlightenment in the Eighteenth Century. A natural born citizen is a person born of the land, Jus Soli and of the blood, Jus Sanguine. In Vattel’s Law of Nations the term was defined to explain a person’s relationship to one’s nation. The 1700’s was a time when nations were throwing off the yoke of tyranny common when people are ruled by a monarchy. Our Founding Fathers included the Natural Born Citizen clause in our Constitution in Article II, Section I, Clause v to spell out the requirements to hold the office of President of the United States. To be a Senator, one merely has to be a citizen of the United States. This means the candidate for Senate must have been born in this country or his parents must have been naturalized before running for office. In the case of the Presidency there is a major difference when it comes to the definition of the type of citizen one must be to be eligible.
Originally the Constitution required that both parents must have been born in the United States or naturalized before any of their progeny could gain the status of Natural Born. When Obama was born, the law of the land required that both parents must have been born on US soil before any of their children were born on US soil to gain Natural Born Citizenship status. Since there is no argument that Barack Obama’s father was no kind of United States citizen, there is no way that Barack Obama could have Natural Born Citizenship status conferred upon him at birth or at any other time. Our Founding Fathers inserted the Natural Born Citizen clause for one reason only, and that was to prevent anyone with divided loyalties from being elected President of the United States. It does not matter if Barack Obama was born in the White House in the Lincoln Bedroom on the Fourth of July. The fact that Obama’s father was a Kenyan citizen and never a US citizen prevents Barack Obama from being President of the United States. This issue should not even be argued, but every day someone will say that the issue of natural born citizenship has never been properly defined in the Constitution or by scholars or Judges, and this is a flat-out lie.
In the 1874 Minor vs. Happersett case, the Court ruled: “At common law, with the nomenclature of which the Framers of the Constitution were familiar, it was never doubted that all children born in a country to parents who were citizens became themselves, upon their birth, citizens also. These were native or natural born citizens, as distinguished from aliens for foreigners. Some authorities go further and include as citizens children born within the jurisdiction without reference to the citizenship of their parents.”
Also, in 1862, Attorney General Edward Bates reaffirmed the universal principle that people born in a country constitutes a nation and as individuals are natural members of the body politic. The bottom line is that at the time of Barack Obama’s birth, only one of his parents was born in this country and the laws on the books at the time required that both parents must be born of the soil and of the blood to be considered Natural Born Citizens. Due to the principle of ex post facto law, Barack Obama Jr. was bound to the law of the land when he was born. This means on this planet in this country, Barack Obama has no right to hold the office he now holds, and we are embroiled in a Constitutional crisis of monumental proportions.
Q. Do you believe there is a court in the U.S. which will give the eligibility question a fair hearing?
A. I do believe the courts in the United States will give the eligibility question a fair hearing because of what the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals tentatively ruled in September. The courts have finally spelled out what they consider to be a person with standing. They practically slapped us all in the face with the answer: a Federal Elections Commission- registered candidate for President of the United States would have standing. Also, since the novelty of the first minority to ever be elected President has been experienced but the outcome found wanting, people are looking for a reason to end the nightmare of an illegal Presidency. We the People need to realize that it is the People for whom this government was founded. There are 330,000,000 Americans vs. fewer than 600 corrupt, career politicians in Washington. If the electorate can rally around a candidate such as me and support my effort to settle the eligibility issue in court first, we can get on with the business of fixing what is wrong with this nation.
Even if I should fail in court, if I am elected President of the United States, the issue of Obama’s eligibility will not go away. The day after I am sworn in, I will have ready a stack of executive orders appointing special prosecutors to investigate the biggest fraud to ever be perpetrated upon the people of the United States. Should the nation fail to elect me and instead stick with a career party politician, I can tell you with a great deal of confidence that the first thing they will do is tell the rest of us that we need to forgive, forget and heal the wounds done to our nation. In other words, the whole issue would be forgotten and an illegal Presidency would be accepted by precedence. This means that anyone from any nation can move to the United States, run for the Presidency and legally be elected and there is no one who could do a single thing about it. Imagine if we were to elect someone like Mitt Romney. There is some doubt as to his Natural Born Citizenship status. Imagine electing a person with divided loyalties with Mexico.
Q. Why do you think no other presidential candidate has formally challenged Obama on the eligibility issue?
A. I believe no other registered candidate for President of the United States has stepped forward to do his duty to the Constitution and the People of the United States by exposing an illegal Presidency out of fear for their political career. At one time in Florida, before Alan West was elected to office, a reporter asked him if he would address the illegal Presidency of Barack Obama. His answer was pretty much the answer most, if not all, candidates will give. If they were to bring up the issue of Barack Obama not being eligible to be President because he does not meet the Constitutional eligibility requirements, it would be political suicide. This is the quandary we are in. The people who rule this nation come from the ranks of Ivy League-trained attorneys, career politicians and wealthy businesspeople. There is no way that they will risk their cash cow to do the right thing; they owe their political careers to their party and special interests. These are the true people who the people we elect represent. This is why it is going to take someone like me who will owe nobody but the People of the United States should I be elected. This is why it is imperative that people at least hear what I have to say. Our nation is ill with a malignant cancer called “career politics.” We must cut out every single cancerous cell before we can even get on with the process of healing the body politic. The question is, are there enough patriotic Americans out there who can see the wisdom of my words and see them as the truth? The enemies of this nation are close to realizing the destruction of the United States. Only the People have the power to stop them, but do the People have the will? I guess we will all find out if I am not elected President of the United States.
Update, October 14, 2011: The website for those who are raising money for Mr. Dummett’s legal challenge against Obama’s eligibility is here.
