Are you ready to throw in the towel and accept Barack Obama as the de facto dictator of the United States? We’re not.
“We’ve just begun to fight.” These words have resonated throughout the pages of American history ever since John Paul Jones, the father of the U.S. Navy, uttered them in battle. I thought I would remind you who we are, what we do, and how you can help:
1. Money, money, money
During the recently concluded presidential campaign I received an average of one fund solicitation a day from the Barack Obama campaign, sometimes more than one. Senator Obama raised almost one billion dollars this way, to lay siege to American democracy, and he succeeded. He certainly did a far better job of raising money than his opponents did.
His unofficial opponents probably raised less than $1 million as a group. Obviously, the financial disparity between a billion dollars and one million dollars—a rounding error in Obama’s accounts—explains why he won the election, and why Senator McCain lost.
I hate to ask for and raise money. By nature, I focus on writing and political action, not financial solicitation. But if we are to continue our mission in the days ahead we will need your support.
We are swamped with bills for court transcripts, fees to Hawai’i state government for freedom-of-information requests and the costs of running an office, keeping systems updated, etc. For example, the Governor has asked for payment of $180 in advance to produce the records of her office concerning the Obama birth certificate dispute. We also need to budget for a new trip to Hawai’i.
2. Who we are
The Committee of One Million to Defeat Barack Obama was created to act as the fundraising arm and treasury of the anti-Obama movement. Doing exhaustive research, filing lawsuits, traveling to remote locations such as Honolulu, keeping track of the overall picture and staying in contact, costs money. Freedom isn’t free and, with the election of Barack Obama, it just became a lot more expensive.
3. Who I am
I am an independent editor/columnist and serve as the Executive Director of the anti-Obama movement, the http://www.StopObamaCoalition.com and the fundraising arm, the http://www.CommitteeofOneMilliontoDefeatBarackObama.com
Just over forty years ago, as a young law student at the University of Illinois, I walked into the Champaign County, Illinois courthouse and filed my first public interest lawsuit. Crooked judges and politicians were looting the property of an elderly couple that had died without leaving wills. I was appalled. The Champaign-Urbana News-Gazette, a local newspaper, attacked me for exposing corruption and advocating public integrity. By exposing corruption I had stirred a hornet’s nest.
Since that first case I have had occasion to file a large number of public interest cases exposing greed, fraud and corruption in public life all across America. As a result, I have made a huge number of enemies in the federal and state courts and legal profession. Judges, lawyers, and the politicians they serve, like to keep things quiet and out of sight. I believe in bright sunlight where public policy is concerned.
With the advent of the Internet I became Executive Editor of http://www.ContrarianCommentary.com, hosted a worldwide radio talk show and began revealing the truth about Barack Obama to Americans.
Being a watchdog is a thankless task. But I appreciate the opportunity to fight to keep the system honest.
I am very proud to have led the way in trying to tell the truth about Barack Obama to the American people. Almost half of them agreed with me on November 4th that he is not the right man to sit in the Oval Office.
4. What we do and what we plan to do in the future
I first began examining Barack Obama’s hidden family history and secret agenda over four years ago.
During the recently concluded campaign, I worked tirelessly to expose Obama and to highlight the strengths and weaknesses of his opponent. I am totally nonpartisan in that regard. I do vote Republican, but I write impartially and follow the facts where they lead.
Obama’s campaign operatives relentlessly attacked me on national television and in the pages of the New York Times. They knew that my investigative commentary was turning voters away from Obama. We helped make it a closer race.
In October, I led the first investigative team to land in Hawai’i. We were subsequently followed by other writers, mainstream media and by Obama himself. We broke the story of Obama’s real biological father. In Honolulu, I filed a pending lawsuit to open Barack Obama’s original, 1961 typewritten certificate of live birth to public inspection for the first time. I forced Hawai’i officials to confirm such a document existed, thereby embarrassing Obama and the mainstream media who had denied its existence.
The Hawai’i court has since tried to sweep the case under the carpet. We are pursuing the litigation with zeal. But we have expenses for transcripts, requests for advance payment of fees to obtain access to state documents and the like. Litigation is expensive and quickly exhausts our resources.
Senator Obama has proposed some frightening totalitarian solutions to our problems. For example, his plan to create a national “civilian” internal security police circumventing the FBI and military is just plain scary. Mr. Obama may adopt Castro style and Chavez type approaches to discouraging dissent and maintaining internal control in the face of public opposition to his administration.
Here is some of what we plan in the days ahead to combat Obama tactics:
First, we were the first to put forward a constitutional strategy that McCain electors should “jam up” the Electoral College with parliamentary procedures and demands for production of Barack Obama’s original, typewritten 1961 birth certificate (certificate of live birth). Our proposal caught fire, and created a nationwide wildfire, as countless groups support the concept of petitioning the EC to investigate Obama’s eligibility to serve as president.
Second, we are conducting a new series of National Conversations to provide opportunities for continuing opposition to Obama across the United States. We began in Hawai’i on November 19th and extend to Florida on December 1st and California on December 26th. Nationwide efforts take money.
Third, we will be continuing our litigation to obtain access to Obama’s original birth certificate and any related documentation. We don’t know how long the litigation will go on, or what the final costs will be. Appeals fees are likely in addition to current expenses in the trial court.
5. How you can help
First, spread the word! It doesn’t cost a penny to tell your family, friends and associates about our efforts.
Second, if you agree with us and want to support our goals, and are able to do so, we invite and need your financial help. You can mail a check payable to the Committee [Committee to Defeat, see mailing address above], or make a convenient online donation if you wish:
Unlike the Obama campaign, which apparently collected a third of a billion dollars in clandestine campaign cash, our maximum contribution is only $100 excepting contributions for lawsuits and related expenses for which we accept unlimited contributions. We have no plans to change. We will continue to operate on a shoestring and rely on small donations to fund our activity.
While we are not going to be like Obama and send out daily fund raising appeals, we probably should remind you more often of our financial needs, especially to support special projects and events as they arise. Obviously, without adequate resources we cannot respond effectively and creatively to the threat posed by Obama and his supporters to the very foundations of our nation.
Consistent with the limited resources available to us, we continue to do the best job we can to protect the American people from Barack Obama’s predatory policies. If you would like to be a part of this effort, we invite you to join us with your financial support. As always, we will provide e-mail updates and
information at no charge.
And as always, if you have any questions, by all means feel free to contact our office by e-mail. Just don’t expect an expensive receptionist or costly phone bank to be standing by. To save money we answer our own phones.
In closing, God bless all of you, and God bless the United States. God bless President-elect Barack Obama, and may time show that our concerns were unnecessary and unfounded; and that once in office he abandoned the Marxist-Leninist policies he has espoused in favor of new respect for the great traditions of our nation and our Constitution.
I would be extremely happy to learn in four or eight years that we were wrong, and that our fears about Mr. Obama turned out to be unfounded. Right now, I don’t have that expectation. That is why I am asking for your support for our continuing efforts to protect the Constitution.
