The lawsuit none dare mention

The lawsuit none dare mention


By Donald Hank

People all around the world are concerned about the lawsuit brought by Hillary supporter Phillip Berg, charging Barack Obama and the DNC with improprieties centered around Obama’s apparent inability to prove he is a US citizen, and in fact his having presented patently false documents, making him constitutionally ineligible to become the next president of the United States. The latest development is that the failure of Obama and the DNC to respond to the charges brought under this suit is, legally, an admission of guilt, making him ineligible for the presidency. It’s all over the internet.

But the silence in the media is deafening. None of the talk hosts will touch the story. Neither will Fox News.

Just this morning I received emails from two different Brazilian friends, including philosopher Olavo de Carvalho, whose columns we proudly present at Laigle’s Forum from time to time.

One email says:

Dear Don

Please clarify this: “Press Release: Obama & DNC admit all allegations in Berg v. Obama”? 

Is this a hoax? If correct, why nobody says anything about it? The ‘official’ great media I can understand but why don’t conservatives like you say anything?

All the best and thanks for any help,

Alan Keyes event to be video-streamed

This just in from Nancy Goettman: 

Alan Keyes to announce break with GOP in Hazleton, PAApril 13, 2008

  PhotobucketHAZLETON, Penn. – Former Republican presidential candidate Alan Keyes has chosen April 15 to make a major announcement of his intentions, following indications he has broken with the GOP.

A life-long Republican who has increasingly cited the party’s failure to match conservative rhetoric with actual performance in the political arena, Keyes said he will reveal his reasons for departing the GOP at a press conference scheduled for 8:30 pm ET, at the Best Western Genetti Inn in Hazleton, PA.

The event will be video-streamed live at Keyes’ website,

Keyes added that he is looking to the Constitution Party as a possible home for his future efforts in politics, including a potential run for president in the 2008 general election.

“No other ‘third party’ is as well-established as the Constitution Party,” said Keyes. “They’ve been around since 1992, and have built a significant grassroots presence among patriotic, Constitution-minded citizens – with a registered membership of over 350,000. Conservatives have a home in the CP that they can find nowhere else, given the decline in the Republican Party’s credibility as a voice and vehicle for conservatism.”

Regarding his potential third-party candidacy for president in the fall, Keyes said, “I believe people deserve a choice. They certainly deserve a conservative choice – something neither John McCain, Hillary Clinton, nor Barack Obama can offer voters. All they can offer is empty promises based on liberal track records.”

Symbolic of Keyes’ break with the Republican Party is a caricature of the GOP logo – upside down – on the front page of his website.

The Constitution Party will hold its nominating convention April 23-26 in Kansas City.

According to Dan Smeriglio, a Keyes supporter who is helping to arrange the event, the former Reagan administration diplomat chose to make his announcement in Hazleton because of the town’s strong stance on illegal immigration.

“I understand a good portion of his speech next week will center on illegal immigration,” Smeriglio said. Smeriglio and a group he represents, Voice of the People USA, have been vocal in opposing illegal immigration since Hazleton Mayor Lou Barletta introduced the Illegal Immigration Relief Act in 2006 – thrusting Hazleton into national prominence in the movement to stem illegal immigration.

Keyes – who has a Ph.D. in government from Harvard and wrote his dissertation on constitutional theory – served as Reagan’s Assistant Secretary of State for International Organizations, as well as Ambassador to the United Nations Economic and Social Council, where he represented U.S. interests in the UN General Assembly.

Stand your ground

By Helen Valois

Deputy Grassroots Coordinator

“You’ve convinced me that you are going to help put Hillary Clinton
or Barack Obama in the White House.”

This is how a friend of mine tried to wrap up a political discussion last weekend.  The circumstances were unusual, even if the comment was not.  Usually, you’ll find a lone Keyes backer being numerically outgunned by a bunch of RINOs.  In this case, the sole McCain supporter found himself faced with an enthusiastic and well-informed circle of Keyes people.

It is interesting that he had nothing to say about our arguments themselves.  A good guy at heart, he conceded the moral and civic points that we raised.  Then, disappointingly, he fell back on the same old “lesser-of-two-evils” approach that the Republican leadership has been serving up for decades now.  The idea that the only way to win is to concede defeat at the very outset, by backing a candidate who doesn’t stand for conservative principle in the first place, has itself come to fruition in the presumptive nomination of John McCain as the Republican candidate for 2008.  Is this not, in and of itself, enough to convince us at last of the wrong-headedness of this approach?

This type of thinking constitutes textbook “enabling behavior,” in the vernacular of popular psychology.  Just as the wife of an alcoholic is supposed to “save the family” by calling in sick for her hung-over husband, we conservatives are being pressured to “save the White House for Republicans” by facilitating the socialist mentality.  “What are you trying to do, get me fired?” the husband demands, if she mentions any qualms.  It is easy to see that, if he did lose his job, the fault would be his own and not hers.  Why then can we not see that it is up to the politician to earn the conservative vote, and not up to the conservatives to put into office a politician who has chronically failed them? 

The pressure to be political enablers needs to be staunchly resisted.  The once-great Republican party has, in nominating John McCain, crossed the line from viable to suicidal, and many well-intentioned Americans know it.  That is why they are saying they will not vote for him, even at the cost of not voting at all.  Yet to allow the RINOs to effectively disenfranchise us is not acceptable, either.  So, where do we go from here?

Before we look ahead, let’s look back.  The Republicans are the heirs of the Lincoln legacy, but what does that truly mean?  During the era of slavery, there was a party – the Democrats – that refused to stand against the ungodly and un-American evil of its time.  There was another party – the Whigs – that let its opposition to slavery be watered down to the point of irrelevance.  It was in this context that a third party known as the Republicans providentially arose.   

Lincoln didn’t make it his life’s objective to rehabilitate a dying political party.  During the nineteenth century crisis of the Republic, he saw to it that American identity and sovereignty – as well as the dignity and life of every American – was, in principle, preserved.  There were challenges, and unspeakable sacrifice, but Lincoln’s cause was ultimately the cause of God Himself, and it was God who saw it through.

In our own time, we have again seen the American mission assaulted not only from without, but also from within.  Socialism renamed “liberalism” has been foisting an ersatz version of our country’s character upon us, while the existing party structure has proven unable or unwilling to stand in the gap.  God, however, is still able to achieve His designs for this world, and it is with Him that we must finally cooperate.

Alan Keyes, as you know, has ended his lifelong affiliation with the Republicans.  This is a step the Ambassador has not taken lightly, and neither should any of us who are considering a similar move.  He has chosen to seek the presidential nomination of the Constitution party, and he asks that you prayerfully consider supporting him in this path.

Many of you took the time to respond to the questionnaire we sent out regarding whether or not Alan ought to go third party.  The overwhelming majority of responses were in favor of his doing so.  You wrote:

  • Alan has always been the best choice, and the Constitution Party is an exciting, hopeful option for the millions of disappointed Americans who do not know another choice exists.
  • I will vote for Dr. Keyes based on his life’s work and not on his party affiliation.
  • I have always voted Republican, but today we have no “life” protection under their party.  It is a fearful thought to envision life under the domination of any current (major party) candidate.
  • Either way, I am supporting Alan Keyes for President of the United States of America.  I have voted for him before and I will continue to vote for him until elected.
  • As a Republican it is hard not to fall in line, but if Alan Keyes joins the Constitution Party and runs as its candidate, I will not only vote for him; I will switch my party affiliation.
  • Understanding all that he stands for, I will vote for Alan Keyes no matter what!
  • We the people have no choice in this election.  As soon as Alan Keyes makes it formal and runs on a third party ticket, I will be joining that party with him.  True patriots have no choice.

Dr. Keyes has frequently noted that he is running for President because principled conservatives are being offered no way of participating in politics in this country without violating their own beliefs.  To say that Alan is the “best choice” expresses this fact, yet inadvertently masks another reality.  As Americans and as believers, we recognize that there are things that lie beyond the reach of our own decisions.  Keyes truly is the choice about which we have no choice; a vote in acknowledgment of that which cannot – strictly speaking – be voted on in the first place.  We too hold certain truths to be self-evident.  Among them are the fact that the lesser of two evils is still evil, and that if John McCain fails to be inaugurated next January, he and the Republican leadership will not need to look beyond the frames of their own mirrors in determining exactly who is to blame.

A reminder

Please donate what you can to help, as Alan travels to Hazleton, Pennsylvania, to announce his future plans – at a press conference to be streamed live on Tuesday at 8:30 pm ET – and as he also travels with his staff to the Constitution Party Convention a week later in Kansas City.

Thanks so much for your financial support!

Important Note:

It is not a done deal that Save America Summit will find it possible to support the eventual Constitution Party Candidate.  The more prominent names being discussed – such as Dr Alan Keyes, Chief Justice Roy Moore, and Dr Jerome Corsi – are stellar, and certainly would garner our support.  But should the party choose to go the “good ol’ boy,” “business as usual” route and nominate some unelectable ticket, too far out of the patriotic mainstream to gather key endorsements, we will have to look elsewhere.

As none of the other 3rd parties – Green, Libertarian… – are likely to nominate anyone worthy of support, this means a really rush-rush drive for ballot access for a new party or independent ticket.  Let’s hope it doesn’t come to that.

Save America Summit

GOP, you’re fired! /Asif is ba-a-a-ck / James Kennedy video


by Tom Cox, Save America Summit

Ronald Reagan started his political life as a Democrat. When he realized the Democratic Party was wandering to the far left, he became a Republican. He’s supposed to have said something like, “I didn’t leave the Democratic Party. The Democratic Party left me.”

I can identify fully with that position. I’ve been a Republican for almost twenty years, but no more. After two terms of a president who ran as a conservative, but governs as a liberal, I’m done with the Republican Party and their stinking pachyderm mascot.  

I voted twice for George W. Bush. I bought the GOP’s line that a conservative/Constitutionalist has nowhere else to go, and that not voting for Bush was, in effect, voting for Gore or Kerry. I hit the limit of my capacity for self-deception with the apparent success of RINO McCain, a dim bulb in a decrepit chandelier of lackluster “front runners” for the GOP nomination.

Enough. As the Republican Party abandons its core values of Judeo-Christian morality, fiscal prudence and respect for the Constitution, it has abandoned me.

At home, we have federal tax dollars being tamped down bottomless rat holes by a federal government that makes LBJ’s “Great Society” look positively tight-fisted.

The expansion of government into what passes for “public education,” these days, is a sop to the powerful teachers’ unions, who will expand their membership, and ratchet up their contributions to the Democrats. The school systems are hooked on federal funds (read: “taxpayers’ money”) that they receive in exchange for bureaucratic micromanagement of their already-failed methods and processes.

The colossal prescription drug welfare program will be a money sink to make New Deal make-work projects seem positively frugal, but this hold-up of the taxpayers will get a big thumbs-up from the multinational pharmaceutical companies – who will donate to the re-election campaign funds of lawmakers who pass laws to help them line their pockets.

Our “War on Terror” (which is like calling World War II a “War on Blitzkrieg,” or a “War on Kamikazes”) has blood and treasure flooding the sands of Afghanistan and Iraq, but we can’t seem to identify the enemy, despite its best efforts to identify itself – the fascist dogma of Islam, a totalitarian socio-political system masquerading as a religion. What hope do we have of winning a war, if we don’t know who we’re fighting?

We have thousands of miles of unprotected national borders to our north and south, with a perpetual tidal wave of foreigners pouring through them daily. Border Patrol agents who try to do their jobs wind up in prison, and illegal aliens wind up on welfare.

There is a lot more, but the above is enough to make my case for firing the Republican Party. When you throw in John McCain, who thinks conservatives and Constitutionalists are unwashed rubes at best, or troublemakers and insurrectionists at worst – well, even an unwashed rube like me gets the message.

The conservative/Constitutionalist core of the Republican Party has been treated in the last few decades just the way Democrats treat American Blacks – as a voting bloc that can be catered to and lied to just enough, leading up to an election, that they will reliably vote with the bloc, and then be ignored and/or abused until the next election cycle is coming.

Democrats worship abortion, which kills Black babies at a much higher rate than their proportion of the population. Democrats perpetuate the failed public school system that does its best to keep Blacks ignorant and isolated from the opportunities America offers to those who help themselves to a better life through productive work.

And yet, the Blacks keep coming back to the Democratic Party, because they buy the fear and loathing that the Democrats are selling. “Republicans are racists! They’ll re-institute Jim Crow, throw poor people in debtors’ prison, and appoint Klansmen to the Supreme Court!”

Conservatives and Constitutionalists keep voting for Republicans, because — well, because they buy the same boogie man story, with different characters, but the same, scary plot.  “Just imagine what a Democrat president and Congress would do to the country! They’ll socialize medicine, impose racial quotas that hurt whites, spend the country into poverty, leave our borders, defenseless, appoint incompetent federal judges, take away our firearms, abolish free speech, blah, blah, blah.”  

Wait a minute. Didn’t a Republican president already do a lot of that, with or without a Republican majority in Congress?

I’m done with the Republican Party. I’m moving up to the Constitution Party, where I feel much more at home. If the Republican Party left you, I suggest you check the Constitution Party out, at their Website: Send those pachyderms packing. Their walking papers are long overdue.

ASIF is ba-a-a-a-ack!

And he is still on his damage-control jihad. Notice what he says about truth. Truth-o-phobia is a malady affecting millions, nay, billions, starting with the Left but also affecting Muslims, by their own confession, as you can read with your own eyes. No wonder the two are such close allies in their joint jihad against Western culture.

But in his latest message, he makes some good points. If you were a Muslim and basing my opinion on the USA on Hollywood, what would you think of us?

There is something both groups can do.

JOHN McCain to taxpayers: Now you can pay your neighbors’ mortgages too

It is so sweet of John to have thought about his fellow Americans in these difficult times. Now, instead of just having to deal with our own finances and grappling with soaring gas and food prices, we can lend a hand to our neighbors by helping them pay their mortgages. I can’t wait to get started.

Might I say that I too have had hard financial times, many of them.

Know what I did each time that happened? Foolish me, I rushed right out and didn’t buy a house because it never occurred to me that the government would bail me out if I couldn’t pay the mortgage!

I could kick myself now for being so brash.

When will I learn my lesson: that bad decisions are for me to make and the government to fix?

McCain’s plan would benefit the government and original lender by giving them certificates for part of the loan’s original value. If the homeowner sold for more, he or she would benefit along with the government and the original lender.

“It is built on the reality that homeowners should have an equity capital stake in their home,” he said. “Homeowners would end up with a 30-year mortgage and an equity stake in their home. The new lender would receive a federal guarantee of the mortgage.

“And the taxpayer gets a benefit if the sale value ever recovers,” he said.

Marx in the schools

Must Buy Book: Whoever Controls the Schools Rules the World

by Gary DeMar

Its been said that “the philosophy of the classroom in this generation will be the philosophy of life in the next generation.” Our earliest founding fathers understood this. That’s why, after building homes and churches, they established educational institutions like Harvard, Yale, Columbia, and Dartmouth. Today, most Christians have adopted the false premise that facts are neutral. They believe it doesn’t matter who teaches math, science, and history, because facts are facts. The humanists took advantage of this type of thinking by gradually shaping and controlling education in terms of materialist assumptions.

Whoever Controls the Schools Rules the World shows how education can be used as a vehicle for social change from Karl Marx and Adolf Hitler to secular humanism and radical Islam. Our worldview opponents understand that education is where the war of ideas is fought. If Christians are serious about securing the future for our children, they must understand the nature of the war we are fighting.
