“A FRAUDULENT USURPER”
by Sharon Rondeau
(Feb. 3, 2014) — On January 14, 2014, former U.S. Senate and presidential candidate Alan Keyes launched a Facebook campaign asking for signatures to “Pledge to Impeach” to end “the dictatorial reign of the imposter and usurper in the White House, Barack Hussein Obama.”
Keyes maintains that “The best way to make sure Obama is impeached and removed in a timely way is to elect an IMPEACHMENT CONGRESS in 2014…” consisting of candidates who support Obama’s removal. He warns the public about “the foolishness” of inaction on what he perceives as Obama’s attempt to “dismantle our constitutional republic.”
On a separate page, Keyes has a set up a “Candidate Pledge to Impeach” with separate sections for U.S. House and U.S. Senate candidates. At the time of this writing, two Senate candidates have signed the pledge, while seven House candidates’ names are listed.
Keyes was a plaintiff on one of the earliest lawsuits challenging Obama’s constitutional eligibility to serve as president in Keyes v. Obama, which was appealed and argued to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals by Atty. Orly Taitz in May 2011. After several months, the court ruled that a presidential candidate had the right to challenge another’s credentials during the primary season of the campaign.
In a separate case argued by Atty. Gary Kreep in 2010, Keyes was a plaintiff, along with Wiley S. Drake and Markham Robinson, against California Secretary of State Debra Bowen for allegedly failing to vet Obama’s eligibility for the presidency.
Doubts about Obama’s constitutional eligibility have existed since late 2007, when commentator Chris Matthews stated on air that Obama was “born in Indonesia.” Since 2004, African newspapers had reported that Obama was born in Kenya, with which Obama’s own biography agreed until April 2007, two months after he announced his candidacy for the U.S. presidency. At that time, the biography was changed to say that Obama was born in Hawaii.
A criminal investigation has determined that the short- and long-form birth certificates placed into the public domain bearing Obama’s name are “computer-generated forgeries,” with significant new information expected to be released next month. While Obama claims he was born at Kapiolani Medical Center in Honolulu, his half-sister, Maya, previously stated that he was born at Queens Hospital. No hospital in the country has claimed his birth, and Cold Case Posse lead investigator Michael Zullo has stated that the investigation has confirmed that “there never was a birth in Hawaii” for Obama.
Birthplace is one of several considerations used to determine whether or not a person is a “natural born Citizen” as required by Article II, Section 1, clause 5 of the U.S. Constitution.
Keyes maintains a blog, Loyal to Liberty, on which he stated:
I started this site in January, 2009, around the time Barack Obama began his occupation of the Oval office. Thanks to my experience with Obama, I had the strong sense that his tenure would mark a major crisis that would threaten the survival of constitutional self-government, of, by, and for the people of the United States.
At the time, relatively few Americans were speaking out about the mortal danger Obama posed to America’s liberty. Most were unaware of his utter rejection of the moral ideas on which America is founded (God-endowed unalienable rights, respect for the laws of nature and of nature’s God, just government powers derived from the consent of the governed). Most were unaware of his lifelong commitment to radical Marxism. Most were unaware that his commitment to perpetuate abortion included the willingness to countenance the murder of fully born infants, like the ones whose lives Kermit Gosnell infamously destroyed.
Thanks to an almost universal conspiracy of silence in the so-called ‘mainstream’ media, voters were led to believe that he was just another liberal politician. They were led to believe his candidacy offered Americans the opportunity to prove they had left the nation’s ugly heritage of racial bigotry and divisiveness behind. They were led to believe that his promises of change reflected a sincere commitment to the prosperity and well being of the nation.
Keyes believes that retiring Rep. Michele Bachmann should also sign the pledge.
On an older blog with the same title, Keyes expresses support for the former Lt. Col. Terry Lakin, a decorated Army flight surgeon who disobeyed orders to redeploy to Afghanistan in 2010 until Obama released documentation showing that he met the constitutional requirement of “natural born Citizen” for the presidency. Lakin was subsequently court-martialed and imprisoned at Ft. Leavenworth for five months and later released from the Army.
Keyes also made an appearance in a WND documentary produced in July 2009 entitled “A Question of Eligibility.”
In his declaration of impeachment against Obama, Keyes lists 11 Articles in which he alleges IRS abuse against “patriotic organizations awaiting approval of tax-exempt status so they might fundraise legally,” “Undermining U.S. border security,” and ascending to the presidency under “false pretenses” to include the use of “a false identity.”
Keyes states that by “appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions,” he will call upon the next Congress following its swearing-in in January 2015 “to begin impeachment proceedings against Mr. Obama,” invoking the words from the Framers in the Declaration of Independence signed on July 4, 1776.
Keyes believes that Obama is “a fraudulent usurper.”
