“THE CONSTITUTION NO LONGER WORKS”
by Sharon Rondeau
(Mar. 29, 2015) — On his March 27 edition of “Freedom Friday,” host Carl Gallups told regular guest Dr. Grace Vuoto that “very soon, it’s going to be outed that Barack Obama was not born on American soil,” which millions of Americans have suspected since 2008 or even earlier.
In December 2007, MSNBC commentator Chris Matthews stated that Obama was “born in Indonesia” and had “an Islamic background,” speculating with his guest whether or not Hillary Clinton would raise those issues during the 2008 primaries.
“Nobody knows where this man comes from, at least publicly; there are people who know,” Gallups said, presumably referring to the Maricopa County, AZ Cold Case Posse‘s more-than-three-year criminal probe into Obama’s long-form birth certificate and Selective Service registration form.
Nearly four years ago, the birth certificate image was posted on the White House website in an apparent attempt to convince Americans that Obama was eligible to hold the office following much publicity from real estate billionaire Donald Trump.
Most Americans understand the U.S. Constitution’s Article II, Section 1, clause 5 “natural born Citizen” requirement to mean that the president and commander-in-chief must be born in the United States, although the term has not been clearly defined in the modern era.
Historical research shows that during the 18th and 19th centuries, legislators, jurists, presidential candidates and diplomatic personnel understood that the citizenship of the father was key to determining whether or not a person was a natural born citizen. By that standard, neither Cruz nor Obama qualifies, regardless of their birthplaces.
On March 1, 2012, Cold Case Posse lead investigator Mike Zullo and Sheriff Joe Arpaio declared at a press conference that Obama’s long-form birth certificate and Selective Service registration form are “computer-generated forgeries.” A second press conference held on July 17, 2012 provided more detail yet yielded scorn and derision from the major media rather than investigative research. Arpaio called upon Congress to launch its own investigation of the posse’s findings. However, many members of Congress denied the problem and continued to either stonewall their constituents or insist that the long-form birth certificate image sufficed as proof of Obama’s eligibility.
Gallups has developed a professional relationship with Zullo over the course of the posse’s investigation.
Vuoto, who hosts her own show, American Heartland, on Saturdays, discussed the fact that the constitutional requirement of “natural born Citizen” has been twisted to purportedly mean that a person born anywhere in the world to one U.S. parent and did not have to go through the naturalization process is qualified. She questioned whether or not a weaker interpretation should be employed in selecting the president and commander-in-chief rather than a stronger one in which “both parents” were U.S. citizens at the time of the candidate’s birth. Gallups added that he believed that the candidate also needed to be born in the U.S.
At 9:43 in the audio segment, Gallups said that he believes “Democrats” “know their man was not born on American soil and there could be a criminal case involved here…,” He said that Obama supporters are thereby maintaining that Sen. Ted Cruz, who declared his candidacy for the presidency last Monday despite a birth in Canada to a Cuban or Canadian-citizen father, is eligible.
Rafael Bienvenido Cruz came legally to the U.S. from Cuba after fighting on the Castro brothers’ side against Fulgencio Batista in 1959, then went to Alberta, Canada to work in the oil business with his new wife, Eleanor Darragh. At some point, Rafael was granted Canadian citizenship. The couple’s son, Rafael Edward “Ted” Cruz, was born in Calgary on December 22, 1970.
Trump has also questioned Cruz’s eligibility, stating that he was taught in school that the president had to be born in the country.
Austrian-born former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger was always considered ineligible to seek the presidency, but in addition to at least eight members of Congress, has contemplated changing the constitutional requirement to allow foreign-born citizens to run. Now, the majority of the media is reporting that Cruz, although foreign-born, is eligible, relying on a Harvard Law Review article written by two former Solicitors General who make no reference to the Founders’ rationale, based on urging from John Jay, that the presidential requirement be higher than simply “a Citizen” or “born a Citizen.”
When the Founders wrote the Constitution, the subject of “naturalization,” invoked in the Harvard Law Review commentary by former Solicitors General Neal Katyal and Paul Clement, was not at issue.
On Friday, long-time Republican political adviser Paul Hollrah wrote that a child’s parents’ allegiance and his upbringing are important in determining whether or not a person should be president, describing Obama’s occupation of the White House as fulfilling of “the Founders’ worst fears.”
The media has acknowledged questions about Cruz’s eligibility but largely taken the view that he is eligible. However, in response to Cruz’s campaign launch last week, Greg Gutfeld of “The Five” asked, “Aren’t we tired of having a president who was born outside the country?”
Cruz has refused to answer The Post & Email’s questions about whether or not he was born with dual U.S.-Canadian citizenship, although he renounced the latter last year. Upon citizenship renunciation, the Canadian government asks if the person so renouncing has or will have citizenship of another country as a safeguard against statelessness.
Attorneys involved in Canadian citizenship matters have reported that anyone born in Canada, regardless of the citizenship of his parents, is a Canadian citizen. The Government of Canada reports that a birth in Canada “probably” means the person is a Canadian citizen.
Cruz claimed not to have known about his Canadian citizenship until after The Dallas Morning News reported it in August 2013. Cruz therefore ran for the U.S. Senate as a Canadian citizen without informing his future constituents of his status.
Vuoto and her husband, WRKO radio host Jeffrey Kuhner, are from Canada. Vuoto expressed her gratitude for having been welcomed into the U.S. An editor of World Tribune, Vuoto has written about the findings of the Cold Case Posse declaring the birth certificate image and Obama’s Selective Service registration form “computer-generated forgeries.”
Gallups discussed the lack of evidence that Obama was born in the United States, including that no hospital in the country claims to have been Obama’s birthplace. He recalled that then-Hawaii Department of Health Director Loretta Fuddy, who allegedly oversaw the release of two copies of Obama’s certified long-form birth certificate, died mysteriously following a water landing of the small plane in which she and eight others had been traveling on business in December 2013.
The airplane mishap occurred two days after Tea Party Power Hour host Mark Gillar released a video reporting that as a result of the Cold Case Posse’s investigation, “prosecutions are coming” and “witnesses will testify.”
Other evidence demonstrating that Obama’s public life narrative may not be accurate includes:
- An investigative report by Breitbart News revealing that Obama’s literary agent in 1991 published a biography asserting that Obama was “born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii.” The biography was not “corrected” until April 2007, two months after Obama announced he was running for president.
- Cold Case Posse lead investigator Mike Zullo has stated publicly that “there was no birth in Hawaii” in regard to Obama and that there is no evidence Obama was ever in Hawaii before the age of five.
- Following the finding that Obama’s Selective Service registration form is a forgery, Selective Service System Director Lawrence Romo refused to allow Arpaio and Zullo to examine the original purportedly held in the agency’s files. The agency then intimated that the originals from Obama’s registration era had been destroyed.
- Two different sets of Selective Service registration forms have been issued bearing Obama’s name without explanation.
- Members of the Kenyan Parliament have claimed that Obama was born in their country.
- Obama has stated that his parents were married when he was born, but his wife Michelle has said publicly that his mother was “very young and very single when Barack was born.”
- While many graphics experts have asserted that the long-form birth certificate image posted on the White House website is a forgery, no expert has vouched for its authenticity.
- Last summer, a congressional aide told a caller, “We know the birth certificate is a fake.”
Zullo has not spoken publicly in several months, and in January, Gallups said that he believed that a hypothetical press conference declaring the final findings of the investigation and that of a second probe opened by Arpaio will take place. In the past, Zullo has said that he will announce the date and time of such a press conference through Gallups’ “Freedom Friday” or PPSimmons News & Ministry outlets.
On March 17, 2009, CDR Walter Francis Fitzpatrick, III filed a criminal complaint of treason against Barack Hussein Obama with the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Tennessee. “…you have broken in and entered the White House by force of contrivance, concealment, conceit, dissembling and deceit…” Fitzpatrick wrote. “The Constitution no longer works.”
Receiving no response except a visit from the U.S. Secret Service two days later, Fitzpatrick filed his complaint in person with the U.S. District Court in Washington, DC, with Judge Royce C. Lamberth presiding. Lamberth agreed to maintain the complaint in his files but took no action on its substance.
On his return to Tennessee, Fitzpatrick conceived of the idea of taking the complaint to his county grand jury for evaluation. Following his submission of the complaint to the Monroe County grand jury foreman, Fitzpatrick learned that grand juries in Tennessee are manipulated and commandeered by criminal court judges to obtain the desired outcome in each case. Ultimately, then-grand jury foreman Gary Pettway refused to submit the complaint to the full grand jury comprising 13 citizens of the county.
Fitzpatrick was vilified, harassed, stalked, and received death threats resulting from his treason complaint. However, he has maintained since March 17, 2009 that Obama is a “foreign born domestic enemy.”
Obama supporters known as “Obots” have worked diligently to keep Obama’s true past from surfacing through hacking, harassment, threatening phone calls and emails, and ridicule apparently using the principles contained in Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals.”
A petition posted at the White House website on March 11, 2015 with 28,389 signatures as of this writing names Obama in the commission of treason for:
1. Surrendering sovereign U.S. war-making to foreign powers and international authorities by attacking Libya without consulting Congress, in violation of U.S. Constitution Article 1, Section 8 and U.S. Code Title 50, Chapter 33:1541-1548;
2. Refusing to secure our broken borders from illegal alien invasion, international criminal incursion, and terrorist cadre penetration, in violation of U.S. Constitution, Article III, Section 3 and Article IV, Section 4
3. Adhering to the enemies of the United States, giving them aid and comfort, as witnessed by consorting with, supporting and installing to powerful Federal positions persons who in writing, word and deed have called for and promoted the overthrow of America’s constitutionally guaranteed Republican form of government, and the overthrow
Nearly two years ago, Zullo told The Post & Email that the long-form birth certificate image was made public “with the intent to deceive.”
On Sunday, The Post & Email contacted Gallups to request more information, to which he responded, “I wasn’t really making a statement; I was simply teasing the point that when all of this is said and done more than likely it will be the case that he is foreign born. I was simply making a comparison between Ted Cruz and Obama. I was not making any statement about the sheriff’s investigation or report.”
Sharon Rondeau has operated The Post & Email since April 2010, focusing on the Obama birth certificate investigation and other government corruption news. She has reported prolifically on constitutional violations within Tennessee’s prison and judicial systems.
