Commenter Jewel asks, “Do you really think there's a chance that Obama might be forced out of office? “
Yes, there is a good chance Obama will be forced out of office. The legal actions against him are increasing in number, and the legal arguments they make are becoming stronger, more precise, and more persuasive.
As of Jan 20, I became certain Obama should be removed from office. The eligibility of the President-elect must be proved before he takes the oath of office. Obama has claimed the office of President without proving his eligibility. Obama is an impostor.
The proof of eligibility rests in the hands of the candidate. Just like when we apply for a driver's license, we must show certain ID. It's our responsibility to get the ID, and present it when asked.
Obama’s mistake is irreversible. If he was eligible, he would have proved it by now. Impeachment is not necessary, he can be removed from office at any time, because it’s not necessary to impeach an impostor. The Constitution specifies the President must be eligible, and Obama is not eligible, therefore according to the Constitution he is not President.
Thus, Obama never was the President. Furthermore, as of Jan 20, he could be tried for fraud and/or treason. Few lawyers would expose themsleves to those risks if he/she could avoid it by producing a few pieces of paper.
Obama may have studied Constitutional law specifically for the purpose of learning how to game the system. He says he has always felt lost because he hardly knew his father, he moved a lot, and he didn't know where he belonged. He must have also known he wasn’t a US citizen. No wonder he felt lost.
Although the Constitution requires eligibility, it doesn’t provide clear details about who will vet the candidates.
In the 2008 election, a Nicaraguan Communist with only a green card was placed on some state ballots. Thousands voted for him. In 1968, Eldridge Cleaver, a convicted murderer/serial rapist, and member of the Black Panthers, ran for President even though he was too young to be eligible. He garnered about 30,000 votes.
In 1881, Vice President Chester Arthur took office when the sitting President died. New evidence suggests Arthur was not eligible because his father was not a US citizen. Arthur concealed his own birth date, destroyed evidence, and had all his personal papers burned before he died. But new research in 2008 uncovered the father’s naturalization certificate. The father became a US citizen long after Chester Arthur was born.
So Obama just stonewalled his citizen critics, and sailed on through, hoping to fake it for the next 8 years.
But the enforcement of the Constitution ultimately rests in the people. By now, millions doubt Obama’s eligibility, and hundreds of thousands are searching for more evidence to unseat him. As the evidence against Obama accumulates day by day, and the number of American doubters rises, there is a rising probability that Obama will be removed from office.
