President Donald Trump speaks with Fox Business’s Maria Bartiromo, May 14, 2020.  Screenshot: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uky7G8CvdeU Article and video here.

(May 18, 2020) — President Trump recently commented on the current ordeal being endured by General Michael Flynn at the hands of operatives of the Deep State, including its operatives in the judiciary.  Among other things, he claimed that the “unmasking” of General Flynn by Obama-era officials – including Joe (“What University of Delaware Records?”) Biden – was “the greatest political crime in the history of our country…” and “the greatest political scam… hoax… in the history of the country…. And people should be going to jail for this….”

With all due respect, President Trump is half right, but arguably half wrong.  He is absolutely correct that people should be going to jail for what they have done to General Flynn.  He is incorrect, however, in his assertion that the “unmasking” of General Flynn constitutes the “greatest political crime,” scam and/or hoax in the nation’s history.  Reasonable minds can differ.

While it is risky to disagree with President Trump’s “greatest scam/hoax” assessment, the leading candidate for that title lies instead with the intentional portrayal in 2008 by the Democrat National Committee, along with one Nancy Pelosi and a fawning mainstream media cabal, of a person purporting to be eligible to serve as president, but who in fact and law was constitutionally ineligible to that office.  That person, of course, was Barack Hussein Obama, Jr.  That, your faithful servant submits, was and remains the greatest scam/hoax in the nation’s history.  And, not to pile on President Trump, but your faithful servant just channeled the Founders… and they agree.

As outrageous and illegal as the offenses against General Flynn have been, President Trump’s use of the terms “scam” and “hoax,” while accurate, is misapplied to General Flynn as being the “greatest in the nation’s history.”  The definition of a “scam” is “a fraudulent or deceptive act or operation.”  The definition of a “hoax” is “an act intended to trick or dupe.”

As faithful readers of The P&E are well aware, the potentially fraudulent and deceptive acts of the Congressional Research Service (“CRS”), purporting to “settle” the question of Monsieur Obama’s eligibility as a “natural born Citizen” under Art. 2, § 1, Cl. 5 of the Constitution, in large measure successfully tricked and/or duped the 535 members of Congress, nine Supreme Court Justices (with the possible exception of Justices Thomas, Alito and Scalia) and one then-sitting president – George W. Bush – into believing that Obama could constitutionally serve as president.

Why did the Congressional Research Service (CRS) write a series of memos attempting to convince members of Congress that Obama was eligible for the presidency, omitting crucial case wording in the process?

More importantly, a majority of the electorate in 2008 also fell for the ruse…, and, as they say, the rest is history.  But recall that they also say: “Those that fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it.”  Recall as well that the first actual CRS “product” purporting (deceptively) to “confirm” Obama’s constitutional eligibility did not appear until April 3, 2009, well after a bamboozled electorate had cast a majority of their votes for Obama and nearly three months after he was first sworn in as the nation’s Second Usurper-in-Chief (“SUC”), Chester A. Arthur being the first.

It was in that memo that the CRS first altered, by ellipsis omission, the words from a quote in the Supreme Court decision of Perkins v. Elg, thereby setting the stage for manipulating (i.e., duping) the nation into believing that Monsieur Obama was a natural born citizen as contemplated by the Founders.  Those deceptions, of course, have been discussed extensively at The P&E since its founding in 2009…, with little effect, at least in the halls of Congress or in the offices of the current administration.

On the other hand, with daily revelations surfacing exposing how deeply Monsieur Obama was enmeshed in the transgressions of the Deep State in the efforts to torpedo his presidency – whether by impeachment, sedition or otherwise – President Trump may well experience a political epiphany as to why presidential eligibility under the Constitution still matters.  A lot.

Specifically, had the reality of Obama’s ineligibility been known – and more importantly,  acknowledged – in 2008, as Bill Clinton…, yes, Virginia…, that Bill Clinton… had suggested back then – the outrages of the Obama years might never have happened.  These would have included, among a host of others, the “Fast and Furious” gunwalking brainchild of Eric Holder; the still-unanswered catastrophe at Benghazi orchestrated by Hillary Clinton; the “exoneration” of Hillary Clinton by James Comey, despite her BleachBitting and destruction of property and documents under congressional subpoena; the disastrous “Iran Nuclear Deal;” etc.; etc.; etc.

The scam/hoax of Obama’s first term of usurpation was, of course, perpetuated when he was again rewarded with a second term.  If nothing else, the Democrats and their troglodyte media sycophants have become really good at marginalizing and lampooning all those who would have the temerity to even suggest – much less produce documentary evidence – that Obama usurped the presidency.  Better yet, the CRS has honed its skills at “covering its tracks.”  By “undoing” the ellipsis omission of Supreme Court language in the Elg case from its first 2009 “of-course-Obama-is-a-natural-born-citizen” memo here, the reality of Obama’s ineligibility likely has been successfully dumped down Orwell’s Memory Hole, at least as far as the CRS is concerned.

Moreover, as noted here, apart from the “natural born citizen” issue, the bona fides of Monsieur Obama’s purported “birth certificate” are again being questioned.  Remember, faithful readers, a picture of a birth certificate posted to the Internet is not a real “birth certificate,” just as a picture of a pipe is not a real pipe.

If President Trump is really interested in “getting to the bottom” of how collusive and nefarious the Deep State really is, he should look more carefully into why the Founders did not want someone like Barack Hussein Obama, Jr. to be even allowed to serve as president.  Draining a swamp requires sucking out all of the muck, not just that which is “easily” removed.

  1. Yes. So please do America a YUGE favor and place infomercials on all the major tv networks in prime-time and full-page infoads in the NYT & WaPo detailing why President Trump should be prosecuted pursuant to 18 U.S. Code § 2382 – Misprision of treason until after Obama et al are prosecuted pursuant to 18 U.S. Code CHAPTER 115 – TREASON, SEDITION, AND SUBVERSIVE ACTIVITIES.

  2. If it is incumbent on the president to do something, and the president knows but doesn’t act, is the president guilty of misprision?

  3. Why would Barr and Dunham decline to prosecute Obama for obvious Treason and Espionage. It is incumbent on President Trump to do something also. After (12) years, Obama is making fools of us all. Those in authority who continue to let Obama go unprosecuted and unscathed by his treasonous acts are guilty of misprision of treason, espionage and felony.

    That includes, Barr,Dunham,Graham and yes, President Trump, if that shoe fits. I don’t know about everyone else but I want answers. I have been working on the Obama case for over (12) years. I am going to be (70) years old soon. I hope I survive long enough to see Obama in the Brig.
    Obama is a traitor,fraud,usurper and fraud. What he did is inexcusable to say the least. Treason and Espionage during war time is a capital offense. I doubt that any person in authority can claim, after (12) years that they haven’t been made aware of the standing charges against Obama, Pelosi, McCain, the Clintons, et al.

    When do they ever plan to do anything constructive about this ongoing criminal travesty is a different story. I’m not quitting. Do Americans want to actually let this matter fulminate to a point to when the taking up of arms to defend this nation becomes necessarily our last option?

  4. The 2008 “election” was a bi-partisan scam/hoax. Every American should be really upset. Their vote meant nothing because both McCain and Obama were not eligible to be President or VP. This newspaper has an entire archive of all the times that government officials were apprised of the situation. DC top government officials are all aware and were all aware of the usurpation of the Presidency. It was a deep state operation with many operatives from both parties. The U.S. Government was taken over in 2008 and 2012. I can prove that every U.S. Attorney General since Holder, up to AGUS Barr know that Obama stands accused of Treason and Espionage. Heck, I even went so far as to make a citizen’s arrest against Obama in 2012. Yes. He was formally served a “Notice of Citizen’s Arrest” through then U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder.

  5. For more information about Congress’ various efforts over many years prior to 2008 to eliminate or abrogate the “natural born Citizen” presidential eligibility clause see: http://www.art2superpac.com/issues.html This was done by leaders in both political parties because both had a stable of attractive candidates for that high office or for VP who were not a “natural born Citizen”: https://www.scribd.com/lists/22182725/Some-Politicians-Seeking-High-Office-Who-Are-Not-A-Natural-Born-Citizen-of-U-S The fix was in during the 2008 election by both major political parties … and the socialist party too.

  6. Good article. A flashback in history. The original 3 Apr 2009 secretly circulated CRS memo (the first of a couple of them with misinformation and disinformation on the subject of natural born Citizen to help Obama) was written for and circulated in Congress to enable uniform talking points to rebut challenges to Obama’s citizenship, was made public as a result of a leak by a congressional staffer to my attorney Mario Apuzzo during the Kerchner et al vs Obama and Congress et al lawsuit charging that Obama was not a natural born Citizen. See: https://www.scribd.com/document/61221761/Kerchner-v-Obama-Congress-DOC-00-Table-of-Contents-for-2nd-Amended-Complaint and See Attorney Mario Apuzzo’s blog post of 5 Nov 2010 announcing our receipt of a copy: http://puzo1.blogspot.com/2010/11/members-of-congress-memo-what-to-tell.html CDR Charles Kerchner (Ret) – http://www.ProtectOurLiberty.org and http://www.scribd.com/user/52640192/protectourliberty/lists

  7. Thank you, I have repeated the obvious hundreds, probably thousands of times and as my favorite actor, Clint Eastwood said in 2012; “Obama is the biggest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people”. Protecting Obama’s usurpation is also reason number one for the panicked and repeated coup attempts to remove President Trump from office.
    ..The many complicit in The Obama Fraud effectively gave America’s government and her military to the enemy. Criminal acts do not get any bigger than that.
    Hillary, the planned in 2008 after Obama cover had to win in 2016…..and certainly not the “birther” Donald Trump……..
    ..Also, remember the first CRS document was requested by leadership of Congress, Pelosi and Reid, after Obama had been sworn-in. They wanted to get a document to members of Congress so they could keep the lies, guesses and obfuscation they were telling their constituents consistent with each office. The CRS works for Congress and the chances of their report saying to Congress, “Whoops, Obama is not eligible”, after he had been sworn-in was exactly zero.
