It is once again an election year. Media outlets will refer to it as the “midterm election,” and political pundits from the Democratic Party will try to convince us that the problems we are experiencing in America are as result of the Republicans in the House of Representatives.
EXCERPT!!!!! ~ You be the judge: Is Fox News Andrew Napolitano correct when he claimed, today, that President Obama took an oath “to uphold the laws?” – EDRIVERA.COM : EDRIVERA.COM
On January 8, 2009, the Electoral College votes were counted in Congress and Barack Hussein Obama was declared to be the forty-fourth President of the United States. On November 6, 2012, Barack Hussein Obama won the popular vote and was declared a reelected President of the United States.
On January 4, 2013, Congress counted the Electoral College votes and declared Barack Hussein Obama to be elected President of the United States and on January 20, 2013 he took this oath: “I, Barack Hussein Obama, do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.” “So help me God.”

My “Basic Course in Law and Government,” the legal education course I devised to teach the written law and government, explains how George Washington took over government and caused the English common law to be replaced by government created written law.
How did Washington pull this off? Very simply, George Washington invented the “inauguration” as a presidential coronation. This is what Washington did: First, he got himself elected to the highest office created by the Constitution of September 17, 1787, the Office of President of the United States of America. Article II, Section 1, Clause 1 vests the executive power of the Articles of Confederation of November 15, 1777 in that office: “The executive Power shall be vested in a President of the United States of America. He shall hold his Office during the Term of four Years, and, together with the Vice President, chosen for the same Term, be elected, as follows”

WHAT IS THE CONSTITUTIONAL LAW OF TAKING AN OATH OR AFFIRMATION AND BEING BOUND BY OATH OR AFFIRMATION?
When one has a question about the Constitution of September 17, 1787, ask George—George Washington. The hero of the American Revolution was President of the May 25, 1787 Constitutional Convention and the first President of the United States of America to be elected by Article II Section 1 Clause 2 Presidential Electors. George Washington was the first President of the United States of America to take the Article II Section 1 Clause 8 oral oath for the Office of President of the United States.
“George, why would you take the oral oath for the Office of President of the United States, on April 30, 1789, when you had been elected to another Office, President of the United States of America on April 6, 1789?” Washington never admitted or explained what he did or why he did it.
“BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA GOT THE OATH RIGHT THIS TIME, OR DID HE?” ~ EDRIVERA.COM – United States America Organic Law Taxes Property Jurisdiction Constitution : EDRIVERA.COM
BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA GOT THE OATH RIGHT THIS TIME, OR DID HE?
According to the Twentieth Amendment,”the terms of the President and Vice President shall end at noon on the 20th day of January.” The Constitution of September 17, 1787 at Article II Section 1 Clause 1 specifies a term of four years which commences when the Presidential Electoral Certificates of Votes are counted in Congress.
Yes, Barack Hussein Obama was officially elected to an office which was vested with the executive power, yet he takes an oral oath of office as an employee of the legislative branch.The Twentieth Amendment doesn’t require the person who wins the Electoral College Vote to take the oral oath of office of the President of the United States.
JB Williams — Obama Re-Elected without Objection?… (“Earlier last week, The North American Law Center delivered notice to all members of congress, advising them not to become complicit in the fraud by certifying the fraud on Friday….The question is now, what will the American people do about it? “)
By J.B. Williams
January 8, 2013
The American people do not vote for presidential and vice presidential candidates, they vote for electors, who in turn, cast their vote for president and vice president. Electors are sworn to cast a vote only for “eligible” candidates and to certify that all candidates on the ballot are eligible for office and have been duly elected, before casting their ballot before congress.
Twice now, in 2008 and 2012, Electors failed in their sworn duty, certifying and casting their ballot for Barack Hussein Obama, despite knowledge that Obama is not constitutionally eligible for the office of president and that he had won both elections through historic fraudulent efforts.
The law requires that the Electoral College certify the ballot and present its vote to congress for certification on the 6th of January following each presidential election. Because the 6th was a Sunday this year, members of congress bumped the congressional certification to Friday the 4th, without fanfare last Friday.
Obama: Eligible only to defraud…by Larry Klayman… (“Unfortunately for Judge Carroll, it’s only a matter of time when he can no longer run and hide from the law or, if that doesn’t work, the wrath of those patriotic Americans who will call him to legal account in an appropriate, peaceful way.”)
Barack Hussein Obama is “eligible” for only one thing: to deceive the American people and the world community into believing he is a legitimate president of the United States. In practice, that is according to all of the judges who thus far have ruled in lawsuits concerning his lack of legal status under the U.S. Constitution as a “natural born citizen.”
As you know, to qualify for the office of president, the law, plain and simple, requires that a person be born in the United States or one of its territories, to two American citizen parents. In watching the HBO miniseries “John Adams” on DVD over the holidays, after many years since it was first shown on television, I was starkly reminded why the framers of the U.S. Constitution inserted this special requirement for the highest offices in the land – president and vice president – into our body politic. This was because there were those persons around them, such as John Dickinson, the colonial delegate and a Tory from Pennsylvania, who to the end advocated against independence from King George III and had remained loyal to the British crown, even when it was clear that the crown was no longer “loyal” to the colonies. These types of individuals clearly were a risk to the new nation. Thus, all foreign influences were designed to be removed in the future from even getting close to the presidency.
By contrast to Barack Hussein Obama, whose Kenyan British-subject father was not only anti-American, but a vehement anti-Semite, anti-Christian Muslim Marxist, John Dickinson was an icon of virtue. Not so virtuous is our illegitimate president, senior’s son, who is a chip off the old block.
The Founding Fathers would be outraged to learn that the system of checks and balances they devised, and in particular the judicial branch of government, had broken down after only 236 years following the Declaration of Independence, allowing someone like junior to run for and win the presidency through fraudulent acts that presented him as a natural born citizen. In this way, Obama could illegally seize control of the fate of the nation as a type of “Manchurian candidate” for interests hostile to the United States and all it stands for.

Those persons who registered so they could vote on November 6, 2012, for United States Senators and Representatives in the United States House of Representatives, also, qualified to vote for one of the candidates for President. All the candidates for the Offices of President and Vice President were the nominees of the political parties who qualified for the Offices of President and Vice President created by the Twelfth Amendment. Federal voters are not electors they vote for a President by voting for the Presidential Electors pledged to vote for that candidate.

…..This goes way beyond stuffing ballot boxes to steal an election. It is fraud that nullifies the Constitutional requirements–the laws– governing who may hold the highest office in the land.
We must also ask why there has been the failure or refusal of many elements of the nation’s judicial system to respond to the law suits, often declaring that the parties filing them have “no standing” before the courts to allege that Obama has defrauded Americans in order to be elected.
Carl Gallups of PPSimmons says he “has exclusive inside information that a surprising and potentially devastating eligibility event is scheduled to happen before the January 6th Electoral College Certification. Perhaps by the middle of December.
This event most likely will be aired on national cable television and around the world exposing Obama‘s ineligibility. The person doing the exposing is a very important person with constitutional standing to do the exposing of the evidence against Obama.”

If my emails and the headlines I am reading indicate anything, there is widespread fear among Americans that something terrible has occurred with the reelection of President Obama. Not all Americans, though. Those who voted for Obama appear to remain oblivious despite the threat of a “fiscal cliff” or the new taxes in Obamacare that will kick in on January 2nd.
We have a Secretary of the Treasury, Timothy, Geithner, calling for an end to debt ceilings, apparently believing that America can continue to borrow money to pay for the interest on its escalating debt, now pegged at $16 trillion and growing daily. The U.S. borrows $4 billion a day. Anyone with a credit card knows that their payments increase as they struggle to deal with their personal debt. Eventually they either declare bankruptcy or turn to companies that negotiate a payment to release them.
If America was to default on its debt, the dollar, already in free fall, would be worth nothing. We would be bartering shiny beads and anything else to buy food and other necessaries. We would become Zimbabwe where you need a million of their dollars to buy a loaf of bread.

Despite losing the popular vote 51% to 48%–not a landslide for Obama by any means, but on the other hand not the “neck and neck” outcome many predicted–Mitt Romney would be President today if he had secured 333,908 more votes in four key swing states.
The final electoral college count gave President Obama a wide 332 to 206 margin over Romney. 270 electoral college votes are needed to win the Presidency. Romney lost New Hampshire’s 4 electoral college votes by a margin of 40,659. Obama won with 368,529 to Romney’s 327,870.
Gunny G: What “The Folks” Are Saying: Benghazi-gate and the Electoral College… (“What if it becomes clear before the Electoral College vote that Obama was running weapons from Libya to Al Queda in Syria and Egypt for use against Israel and perhaps against our American servicemen? I say popular vote be d@mned.”)
The Electoral College will cast votes in the fifty states on December 17th. About half of the states require their electors by law, more or less to vote for the popular vote winner or political party winner. The rest do not require electors to vote for a specific candidate.
Obama apparently won the popular vote on November 6th.
November 7 | Was the election stolen? Remember all those lawsuits by Democrats demanding that any voter identification laws be repealed. Well, now we know why they filed them. They needed to steal the vote in certain key states so that Obama could be reelected.
Curiously, Obama lost in every state that requires a photo ID to be produced before voting. A list of closely contested state elections with no voter ID, which narrowly went to Obama include: Minnesota (10), Iowa (6), Wisconsin (10), Nevada (6), Colorado (9), New Mexico (5) and Pennsylvania (20). This amounts to a total of 66 electoral votes. When added to Romney’s total of 205 electoral votes, that would give Romney 271 electoral votes, enough votes to win even without Ohio or Florida.
Article 2 of the US Constitution seems to me to be clear enough. To be eligible for the presidency a candidate presented to the Electoral College has to be an American Citizen, born in the United States. It is a matter entirely for them but I see no reason why the Electors could not ask for evidence of Barack Obama’s eligibility. That applies to all candidates of all races from all parties by the way.
I don’t accept that Senator McCain was eligible to be sworn-in, as in my opinion he was born in a hospital in downtown Colon, in Panama. It wouldn’t matter if he were born on Coco Solo Marine Corps Air Base, as he claims, as that was not in the United States. Quite where on the base he was born is a moot point, since the hospital was not built for another five years. I don’t accept that Senator Goldwater qualified for the presidency either – his eligibility was queried at the time, as he was born in a territory, not a state.
RUSH: So three million Republican voters stayed home on Election Day. Three million predominantly white voters stayed home. The media is all over the place with the fact that the Republicans lost “the white vote.” They can’t get the white vote. They did lose the white vote, but Democrats didn’t get it. They just didn’t show up, and it wasn’t voter suppression that didn’t turn ‘em out.
What would be the reason that three million voters didn’t show up? Let’s go through the possibilities. It could be that there are a number… We’ve talked to ‘em. We’ve had ‘em call. We got ‘em, in fact, on hold. A number of Republicans are tired of moderate nominees. They’ve sent the Republican Party money for years and said, “To hell with it. If you’re gonna eschew conservatism, I’m not giving you any money, and I’m not voting for you.”
We’ve heard them call here and threaten this, and never believed ‘em. May be. We could also have some evangelicals in that group that said, “You know what? I’m tired of the Republicans not reaching out to me. I’m tired of making fun of me. I don’t like Mormons.” Who knows what it is? You could have any number of reasons why these three million don’t show up, but they are the difference.
Lawmaker: If president gets 2nd term, he’ll spring these regulations on America
President Obama’s re-election campaign theme is “Forward,” but Sen. James Inhofe says Obama has purposefully spent the past four years destroying every institution that makes America great and making life miserable for American businesses of all kinds.
Inhofe, R-Okla., also revealed what he calls Obama’s “November surprise” – detailed plans for massive regulation if he wins re-election.
Inhofe told WND’s Greg Corombos people from his state constantly tell him they feel targeted by government regulations, and he used energy as a prime example.
“They have this war on fossil fuels,” Inhofe said. “He’s doing everything to kill domestic production of oil, natural gas and coal. This is something that is just un-American.”
Propelled by impressive debate performances, Mitt Romney has surged in the polls. Gallup had the GOP nominee leading by as many as seven points recently, and likely women voters, who once favored Barack Obama by double digits, now lean toward the president by only one percent in the swing states.
Even more significantly, Romney has finally taken the lead in the Real Clear Politics electoral-college estimate, 206 to 201. And it’s plain to me what all this means for November 6.
If you’ve been paying attention to the Drudge Report lately, you’ve seen headlines linking to Real Clear Politics data showing how the presidential race has tightened since President Obama and Mitt Romney debated in Denver.
HOW IT FORMED
When framers were drafting the U.S. Constitution, there were two competing ideas on how to elect the president. One group said Congress should do it; the other said it should be a national vote of eligible citizens. There also were disputes over how much slaves should count in representation in Congress and over how power would be distributed between small and large states. The compromise became part of the second article of the Constitution, although the words “Electoral College” are not included. The electors pick the president and vice president.
Listen to Ron Paul
As we enter the fall political season, we will hear a great deal of rhetoric from both major political parties and their
many candidates for office. It’s important for us to remember, however, that words can be made meaningless by misuse or overuse. And when we as citizens allow politicians to obscure the truth by distorting words, we diminish ourselves and our nation.?

President of the United States of America Barack Hussein Obama was vested on January 8, 2009 with the executive power of the United States of America that office is not a job. Being President of the United States is a job and Barack Obama is paid just to be President of the United States according to Section 102 of Title 3 of the United States Code.
…..With removing Obama from office being the highest priority in America today, I decided to study the landscape of the 2012 election myself, taking nothing for granted and a very realistic look at how the 2012 Presidential race is likely to shape up by November.
You are about to see why I started saying in 2008, that Obama will be nearly impossible to remove from office if allowed to complete his first term, no matter how ugly his first term record would become. Here’s why I was saying that…Mitt Romney is a lock for the GOP nomination based upon 53.2% of the popular primary vote and 73% of the official GOP delegate count. Santorum in 2nd and Gingrich in 3rd are out of the race and Ron Paul is sitting at 11.2% of the popular vote, 6% in the delegate count. Barring any unforeseen miracles, Mitt Romney will emerge from the GOP Convention as the GOP nominee for the office of President.
True representation–the Electoral College strategy
By Alan Keyes
This entry is part 6 of 6 in the series Restoring Representation
Step Three: Focus on a choice that represents the common good
On his departure from office, America’s first President, George Washington, delivered his famous Farewell Address in which, among other things, he warned against reliance on just the sort of partisan politics system that now dominates America’s political life, and that has deeply corrupted America’s political culture:
Let me now…warn you in the most solemn manner against the baneful effects of the Spirit of Party…It exists under different shapes in all Governments, more or less stifled, controlled or repressed; but in those of the popular form it is seen in its greatest rankness and is truly their worst enemy….[T]he common and continual mischiefs of the spirit of Party are sufficient to make it the interest and duty of a wise people to discourage and restrain it….[I]n governments purely elective, it is a spirit not to be encouraged. From their natural tendency, it is certain there will always be enough of that spirit for every salutary purpose.

Along with the realization that Conservatives can win in a Conservative-leaning country, comes the ugly truth that the “establishment” Republican apparatus is – just like the Chicago politician – more concerned with maintaining power and “selecting” candidates than doing the hard work of administering to a bottom-up organization – such as the Republican Party was chartered to be.
Today’s Republican establishment is, for all practical purposes, a mirror or converse image of the Democrat Party; an organization structured from the top-down.
This power-hoarding of the hierarchy is evidenced by the ridiculous move to award convention delegates proportionately, a move more in line with the abolition of the Electoral College than with the preservation of the Republic.
WASHINGTON – The politics behind who governs here dabbles in the absurd so often that absurdity is practically normal. So it is not ridiculous to consider that the next presidential election could end in an electoral tie.
If so, it would be the fourth time that has occurred – and likely would bring to its knees the controversial math that ultimately decides the presidency.
How do we know? We don’t, of course. Campaigns and candidates evolve, and elections are dynamic events with more variables than can reasonably be distilled in an equation. But the data–based on a prediction engine created by Yahoo! scientists–suggest a second term is likely for the current president. This model does not use polls or prediction markets to directly gauge what voters are thinking. Instead, it forecasts the results of the Electoral College based on past elections, economic indicators, measures of state ideology, presidential approval ratings, incumbency, and a few other politically agnostic factors.
Why the Electoral College?
In 1789 our elected Executive, the President, was unique among nations.
We recently won a costly revolution against a King who was armed with extensive executive powers. They were not unlimited, but enough to take his country to war. Most of our Declaration of Independence consisted of accusations against the British King. Beginning largely with “He has . . . ,” the Declaration specified twenty-seven charges. The Framer’s generation was understandably cautious and suspicious of executive power.
Peruse Revolutionary era State Constitutions and you’ll find the people dominated their governments through elected, representative Assemblies. Given the executive abuses by George III, our first State Governors were understandably kept weak.
It was against this background our Framers came to the conclusion that a national executive was needed for a country that would rather do without one. Yes, national executive, for it would be some time before the delegates were brave enough to use the term President. No other topic demanded so much time at the Constitutional Convention of 1787, as evidenced by more than sixty votes necessary to define the method of Presidential election. From near the beginning of the Convention on May 25th and almost to the end, September 17th, they wrestled with Presidential powers, the balance of those powers with Congress, and how a free people could design an office that precluded the trappings of monarchy, minimized internal and external corruption and prevented foreign influence.

For some time now, many conservatives have thought that President Obama is the Second Coming of Jimmy Carter. They think that chronic 9% unemployment, creeping inflation, and a foreign policy of self-abasement and weakness will doom Obama to a single term, and that he’ll slink off with his tail between his legs in disgrace, just like Carter did after 1980.
Maybe they should be thinking about the election of 1996 instead.
Nix the “national popular vote,” and keep states’ winner-take-all electoral voting
When one loses a contest perceived to have been “unfair,” the natural human instinct is to try to change the rules. That instinct is perilously close to harmfully affecting the conduct of our presidential elections.
Two separate efforts, the “national popular vote” (NPV) movement and Pennsylvania’s recent attempt to implement congressional district-based electoral voting (which I will call “CEV”), have gained traction. Both ideas recall a pithy phrase attributed to Ben Franklin in 1787 shortly after the Constitution’s adoption. When asked whether the Founders’ handiwork represented a republic or a monarchy, Franklin responded: “A republic, if you can keep it.” I contend that his response would have been the same if the question’s alternatives had been a republic or a democracy. Both NPV and CEV represent dangerous movements towards the latter at the expense of the former.
more ~ much more…..
Republican state legislators in Pennsylvania are pushing a scheme that, if GOPers in other states follow their lead, could cause President Barack Obama to lose the 2012 election—not because of the vote count, but because of new rules. That’s not all: There’s no legal way for Democrats to stop them.
The problem for Obama, and the opportunity for Republicans, is the electoral college. Every political junkie knows that the presidential election isn’t a truly national contest; it’s a state-by-state fight, and each state is worth a number of electoral votes equal to the size of the state’s congressional delegation. (The District of Columbia also gets three votes.) There are 538 electoral votes up for grabs; win 270, and you’re the president.
Here’s the rub, though: Each state gets to determine how its electoral votes are allocated. Currently, 48 states and DC use a winner-take-all system in which the candidate who wins the popular vote in the state gets all of its electoral votes. Under the Republican plan—which has been endorsed by top GOPers in both houses of the state Legislature, as well as the governor, Tom Corbett—Pennsylvania would change from this system to one where each congressional district gets its own electoral vote. (Two electoral votes—one for each of the state’s two senators—would go to the statewide winner.)
This could cost Obama dearly…

Barack Hussein Obama never spoke truer words.
When he says no one asked him for his birth certificate during the 2008 campaign, he’s essentially right. No controlling legal authority in America asked for it.
I asked for it.
Jerome Corsi asked for it.
In fact, I organized a campaign to inform each member of the Electoral College, the Supreme Court and the Federal Elections Commission of the serious questions about Obama’s constitutional eligibility to assume office. But none of those parties demanded any evidence of the president-elect.
As Obama himself says now, “It was a complete leap of faith.”

While it matters little to Libertarians, Ron Paul’s vote to sanction bowel movement sex for sodomites in our military is beyond destructive. He voted to use our military as more social experimentation to force acceptance of what God called an abomination: men having sex in each other’s feces.

A long list of state lawmakers are marching forward on a number of legislative fronts to ensure candidates for president on their election ballots are eligible to hold the office.But state Rep.

The state’s Presidential Eligibility Assurance Act would specify, “It is unlawful for any presidential elector from this state to cast his or her electoral college vote for a candidate who is not approved by the Secretary of State as having submitted adequate evidence of eligibility.
Any person who violates this Code section shall upon conviction be guilty of a misdemeanor of a high and aggravated nature.”
I always give credit where credit is due, but I will not excuse any incumbent for cowardice when it comes to making tough decisions or votes promoting filthy, dirty and immoral behavior in our military.
At considerable cost, Worldnetdaily has made their latest issue of Whistleblower Magazine available free on line. Read what some of our highest decorated soldiers and active duty have to say about sexual deviants openly serving. Perhaps Ron Paul should take the time to read it.
He might learn facts such as sodomites are three times more likely to sexually prey on fellow service members; just the one of the problems with allowing sodomites to openly flaunt their filthy sexual preferences. As a medical doctor, Ron Paul, knows men having sex in each other’s feces is not healthy.
I will not vote for any incumbent in Congress who was there on January 9, 2009. That is the day that will go down as one of the greatest acts of cowardice by the U.S. Congress in history.On that day, despite the massive public outcry over Obama/Soetoro’s ineligibility to run as president, not a single male or female in that entire body had the guts to stand up and stop the electoral college vote count.
Not one and that includes Ron Paul…………………..

DON’T TRY TO REPEAL OBAMACARE. INSTEAD, REVEAL THE TERRITORIAL LIMITATIONS OF ALL FEDERAL LAWS. : EDRIVERA.COM
Filed Under Articles of Confederation, CONGRESS, CONSTITUTION, Declaration of Independence, Electoral College, LAW OF THE LAND, LEARNING THE LAW, Martial Law, Northwest Ordinance, OBAMA, ORGANIC LAWS, Oath of Office, Presidential Elector Federal law is made for the federal government, federal employees, federal territory and federal citizens.
The Declaration of Independence of July 4, 1776 sets forth the proposition that free people are free because freedom is defined by universal unwritten law and that law is above and superior to all written law.
Article IV of the Articles of Confederation of November 15, 1777 secures to the people their right to be free under unwritten law.The Northwest Ordinance of July 13, 1787 was the first attempt of the United States in Congress assembled to extend written legislative over all the people, by first making the settlers and inhabitants liable for the federal debt and federal taxes.The Constitution of September 17, 1787 allowed the newly created federal government under the Articles of Confederation and Northwest Ordinance to institute a government corporation to administer the territory owned and ceded to the United States of America. George Washington’s bloodless takeover of the federal government accomplished by his election to the Office of President of the United States of America and his taking of the oral oath of Office of President of the United States…
Joe Miller, Alaska’s Republican nominee for the United States Senate, recently expressed support for an idea that is rapidly gaining steam in Tea Party circles: the repeal of the Seventeenth Amendment. Miller subsequently backtracked from his statement, but he shouldn’t have: Repealing the Seventeenth Amendment would go a long way toward restoring federalism and frustrating special-interest influence over Washington.
Ratified in 1913, the Seventeenth Amendment replaced the election of U.S. senators by state legislators with the current system of direct election by the people. By securing the Seventeenth Amendment’s ratification, progressives dealt a blow to the Framers’ vision of the Constitution from which we have yet to recover.The Constitution did not create a direct democracy; it established a constitutional republic. Its goal was to preserve liberty, not to maximize popular sovereignty.
To this end, the Framers provided that the power of various political actors would derive from different sources. While House members were to be elected directly by the people, the president would be elected by the Electoral College. The people would have no direct influence on the selection of judges, who would be nominated by the president and confirmed by the Senate to serve for life or “during good behavior.”
And senators would be elected by state legislatures.Empowering state legislatures to elect senators was considered both good politics and good constitutional design. At the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia, the proposal was ratified with minimal discussion and recognized as the approach “most congenial” to public opinion.
Direct election was proposed by Pennsylvania’s James Wilson but defeated ten to one in a straw poll. More important than public opinion, however, was that limitations on direct popular sovereignty are an important aspect of a constitutional republic’s superiority to a direct democracy. As Madison observes in Federalist 51, “A dependence on the peo…
