“Fairness” v. Freedom: Show Notes, The Teri O’Brien Show, 4/1/12

About 15 minutes into this episode of the program, we experienced a complete loss of internet connection. So that accounts for any dead air that you hear. We were back by the bottom of the first hour, and all was well thereafter. I really appreciate those of you who hung in there until we were back!

Brain-damaged Keith Olbermann fired AGAIN. Replaced by the 2nd least talented personality on television, Eliot “Client #9″ Spitzer. (Least talented? Chelsea Clinton, of course!)

Thanks to our guest, Van Irion of the Liberty Legal Foundation to share his thoughts about the Supreme Court’s oral arguments on the Affordable Care Act. Please visit the LLF website for tons of useful information on the legal challenge to Obamacare, Barack Obama’s eligibility to hold the office of president, immigration, and more!

Lame Stream Media dutifully recites Obama campaign talking point that Mitt Romney is filthy rich and “out of touch,” neglecting to mention that Barack and Michelle continue to live at a level of luxury unheard of in human history, in part on our dime. At least Mitt Romney is spending his own money, not ours, no?

GOP rising stars Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), and Tea Party favorite Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) endorse Mitt Romney. Rubio says a brokered convention would be a DISASTER for the GOP nominee. Is he right? Is he eligible to be Vice President?

On ABC’s “This Week,” Communist/former Obama “green czar” (there’s a really important function!) Van Jones says GOP should nominate Condi Rice for VP and watch Obama campaign go crazy, and Terry Moran tries to intimidate the Supreme Court by bringing up Bush v. Gore. He looks shocked when George Will tells him that no one cares about Bush v. Gore, and says that “we don’t know” Mitt Romney. Oh yeah, Terry, as opposed to Barack Obama, who is a complete open book, thanks to you and your vigilant colleagues terrific journalism to vet him in 2007 and 2008.

Our favorite April Fool, Joe “Gaffe Machine” Biden is at it again.

Chris Matthews and his panel, including Dan “fake but accurate” Rather praise B. Hussein’s obnoxious comments about the Trayvon Martin case, but ignore the New Black Panther Party’s felonious bounty on George Zimmerman.

What Obamacare is REALLY about: Today on the Teri O’Brien Show

The Supreme Court oral arguments over the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act, which, in a dramatic reversal, even Obama now calls “Obamacare,” shined a spotlight on the battle hat will be joined in November, a battle for the soul of this nation; that is, are we a country that guarantees opportunity, but not results, for all?

The Obama campaign has been planning for at least a year to run against a caricature straight out of a Gilded Age cartoon, and now with Mitt Romney on the verge of clinching the nomination, they and their Lame Stream Media allies are ramping up the class envy rhetoric, hoping to stoke the voting enthusiasm of their most loyal constituency, the Takers, who believe they are entitled to some of what the Makers have produced. In large measure, that’s what the health care debate is about, a “remade” America in which the fruits of one person’s labor are taken through the coercive force of the federal government and given to another. Isn’t is a measure of how far we’ve come from the Founders’ vision that there could be even the slightest belief that this statute could pass constitutional muster? And what of the failure of Justice Kagan, who was the Solicitor General at the time the law was passed, to recuse herself from the case? We’ll ask our guest, Van Irion of the Liberty Legal Foundation, these questions, and also get his take on what the Court will decide.

Sen. Marco Rubio came out last week and endorsed Mitt Romney, albeit in a rather tepid, almost resigned “Oh, all right, I guess it’s going to be him” statement. Is he correct that a brokered convention helps only one guy, Barack Obama? Why won’t Santorum acknowledge, as Newt Gingrich did earlier this week, that Mitt Romney will almost certainly be the nominee? Is he right? Is Marco Rubio the perfect running mate for Mitt, and is he even eligible to run?

Join us Sunday for the rest of the story.

Ultimate Irony: Will Obama be Disqualified from Running in 2012? Today on the Teri O’Brien Show

If we were to describe the Obama administration in one word, it would be difficult, but several options do spring to mind. “Stagnation,” certainly wold be on the list, when we think of our limping economy, which Barack Obama pledged to fix. Considering the frequent White House celebrity-studded soirèes, the lavish luxury vacations, Michelle’s full-time makeup artist and fly-ins for their personal trainer, “extravagance” is another word we could use, which brings us to something that probably comes a lot closer, “hypocrisy.”

All of these words are spot on, but there is one that captures the essence of this administration better than any other, and that word is “lawless.” Michele Bachman was completely accurate when she referred to “gangster government.” Consider the following:

  • The Solyndra scandal
  • His continuation of an offshore oil drilling moratorium, despite its being struck down by a U.S. District judge, an action that resulted in the administration being held in contempt of court
  • His “recess” appointments, deemed legal by one of his own administration’s lackeys in the White House counsel’s office, including the appointment of Richard Cordray, head of the new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. This last one particularly offensive, since the very stature creating this position requires Senate confirmation

The latest example of this bunch thumbing its nose at the rule of law and the other brances of government, occurred this past Thursday, when Barack Obama defied Georgia administrative judge, the Honorable Michael Malihi’s order that he appear and produce documents to respond to a challenge to his eligibility to appear on the ballot. Today we are delighted to welcome back Van Irion, founder of the Liberty Legal Foundation, lead attorney in the case arguing the position that Barack Hussein Obama is not an Article II “natural born citizen.” Why did Obama fail to appear through his attorney? Is this just another example of his administration’s lawlessness or is there something else behind it? What’s the end game? If the judge enters a judgement against Obama, what will be the practical effect? And what about the political implications? Is this litigation a gift to the Obama campaign? Could this be the ultimate irony: a lawless administration disqualified from consideration in the upcoming election because of its very existence violates the law?

Tune in Sunday for the rest of the story.

Resolved: Barack Obama is Not an Article II, Natural Born Citizen

Or at least maybe it will be resolved soon. Tomorrow a Georgia court will hear the challenge to Barack Obama’s eligibility to appear on the ballot because he is not an Article II “natural born citizen.” Even though he was ordered to appear, don’t expect the One to show up. He’ll send one of his mouthpieces. I hope that they don’t plan to show up with some creative Photoshop stuff. Remember what happened to Bill Clinton. It’s not the crime. It’s the coverup. Not that any of that sort of thing would matter. If his father was actually Barack Obama Sr., he can’t qualify.

  • As I have been saying for over a year, Barack Obama is not an Article II natural born citizen, even though pompous Lame Stream Media gasbags, along with most Americans, don’t know seem to know the difference between an Article II “natural born citizen,”  a “native born citizen,” or an anchor baby. Way to go, leftists! Your mission to dumb down the population has been a success!
  • Just in time for the hearing, it turns out that even Obama’s INS recognizes the difference between a naturalized citizen, a native born citizen and a natural born citizen.
  • Did anyone notice this creative editing of the State Department’s Foreign Affairs manual by the Obama administration in August 2009? Very interesting.

This situation brings the Founders’ wisdom into stunning clarity. Barack Obama, who has made no secret of his contempt for the Constitution as a doctrine of “negative rights,” as in an obstacle to his plans to “remake” our country by redistributing wealth in the interest of “fairness,” is the poster child for the danger of ignoring their wisdom.
