“COLLUSIVE AND NEFARIOUS”
by Joseph DeMaio, ©2020
(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.
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.
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.
