An American Story

An American Story

PHOTOS.COM

On a hot June afternoon in 1998 in Spokane, Wash., I raised my right hand and pledged my allegiance to the flag and to the United States of America.

Today, I have that pledge framed and hanging on my office wall. It reads in part:

I hereby declare, on oath, that I absolutely and entirely renounce and abjure all allegiance and fidelity to any foreign prince, potentate, state or sovereignty, of whom or which I have heretofore been a subject or citizen; that I will support and defend the Constitution and laws of the United States of America against all enemies, foreign and domestic…

I felt a lot of emotions that day. I had become a citizen of the greatest Nation on Earth. Yet in some ways I didn’t feel much different, no doubt because of my paternal roots.

I remember leaving my small country school to attend the biggest high school in Calgary four decades ago. The kids teased me with words like “Yankee.” I never disputed what they thought were catcalls and proudly embraced the fact they believed I was an American.

I remember the dinnertime stories my father would tell about his father Amil and his grandfather, Gustov, a bearded German who spoke English with a harsh accent.

Amil was all of 9 and had just become a naturalized citizen a few weeks before he and his father embarked on one of the greatest American adventures ever: the Oklahoma land rush of 1889.

Those Unassigned Lands were considered some of the best unoccupied public land in the United States. The Indian Appropriations Act for 1890 was passed and signed into law with an amendment by Representative William Springer (D-Ill.). The Springer Amendment authorized the President to open Unassigned Lands for settlement. Because of the Homestead Act of 1862, signed by President Abraham Lincoln, legal settlers could claim lots up to 160 acres of surveyed, unclaimed public domain. If the settler lived on the land for five years, improved it and paid claim registration fees, he could receive the title to the land.

My American heritage is hardly blue-blooded; but as much as any group, the people of that time put down stakes for a Nation that would dominate the world in just 50 years.

Stubborn Men And Beasts

An estimated 50,000 people lined up for their share of the land. The race began at high noon on April 22, 1889, when starting signals were given at the points of entry.

Gustov and Amil Myers were among the settlers in a hastily built wagon box that was pulled by an aged gelding and a mean mule.

Everything they owned was in that wood-and-iron wagon, and everything they dreamed lay in front of them.

It was a dash the moment the gunshot echoed across the prairie. Gustov’s mixed-team raced the first half mile. The horse was breathing hard and the mule would not run any farther than she had to.

Those behind were on bicycles or on foot. My grandfather remembered one man carrying four wooden stakes tied to his belt loops, but no hammer. Those ahead were disappearing on the horizon; the richest land would be theirs.

Behind the scenes: What every American needs to know

by Douglas J. Hagmann on Thursday, August 18th, 2011

This is article 33 of 81 in the topic Presidential Eligiblity

The corporate media, the U.S. Congress including Tea party members, and the entirety of GOP presidential candidates have all apparently lost interest in enforcing or even addressing the constitutional requirements established by our forefathers pertaining to the eligibility of Barack Hussein Obama. Individually and collectively, they have given a pass to Obama and accepted what is represented as his legitimate Certification of Live Birth, a scanned document that has failed miserably in terms of its authentication.  It does not take an investigator to understand that simply because a person claims a document is authentic does not make it so. Even, or perhaps especially, when it is the President.

At the forefront of the legal battles to compel Barack Hussein Obama to provide tangible, authenticated documentation about his identity, including a certified hard copy of his long form birth certification, and answer questions concerning his possible duplicitous use of a Connecticut issued social security number has been the much maligned Orly Taitz.

Orly Taitz is a practicing attorney in California who has been relentless in her pursuit for the truth.

Ms. Taitz was born in the former Soviet Union under a communist regime, and knows the tactics and disinformation practices of communism.  She has seen Marxism at work, and came to the United States where she became a naturalized citizen in  1992. She has been a practicing attorney in the state of California after passing the bar in December of 1992. She is also a doctor of dentistry and a patriotic American who, at great expense to her own professional endeavors, is one of the few legal voices in America who continues the valiant although arduous pursuit of truth regarding the man occupying the Oval Office.

For her efforts on behalf of every American who still cares about the United States Constitution and rule of law, she has been viciously attacked, threatened, and even sued. The corporate media has attacked her personally and professionally, and even some self-proclaimed conservative talk show hosts have abhorrently and  fiercely attacked her.

On Friday, August 19, 2011, we will hear what’s been happening behind the scenes – what the corporate media, career politicians, globalists, and Obama defenders don’t want you to hear. Tune in to a special three-hour Roth Show, where Douglas J. Hagmann, founder and director of the Northeast Intelligence Network will interview Ms. Taitz about the current status of her efforts as well as events taking place behind the scenes.

This is one program that every American who cares about the future of our country and the rule of law will want to hear.

When: Friday, 19 August 2011; 6:00-9:00 pm ET (3:00-6:00 pm Pacific)

Where: The Roth Show, nationally syndicated on the IRN-USA Radio Network. Listen live on your local station or via the Internet. Call-in (877) 999-ROTH

Host: Douglas J. Hagmann, Founder & Director of the Northeast Intelligence Network

Obama’s Fake Birth Certificate

by Jeff Lukens on Tuesday, June 14th, 2011

We knew the day Barack Obama announced the release of his Birth Certificate that the document would be checked nine ways to Sunday for authenticity. Well, the Internet sleuths have done their work and preliminary indications are that it is not only fake, it is not even a good fake. I am about Obama’s age and my Birth Certificate is yellowed, creased and wrinkled. I wonder why Obama’s looks brand new? Maybe that is because it is brand new. Perhaps this is why he spent millions of dollars over three years to prevent its release only to hastily let it out when he started to lose the PR battle over the issue.

Three websites will give you the basics on the forensic details of the document. Check them out here, here and here. The evidence is so overwhelming that the Birth Certificate is a fake, it is as if he is toying with us. Obama seems to be daring anyone to verify the document and apply it to a Constitutional standard. It’s like, “Yeah, it’s fake. What are you going to do about it?” His intent is obviously to stir up infighting between his opponents and throw them off track.

Assuming the Birth Certificate was real, another issue regarding his constitutionality to be president that is often overlooked is the definition of a natural born citizen. Until 2008, the common understanding of a natural born citizen was that all persons born within the U.S., of parents owing allegiance to no other sovereignty, were natural born citizens. Obama’s father (being Kenyan and in 1961 being a subject of the British Crown) would by this definition exclude Obama as a natural born citizen. He would be classified a naturalized citizen.

If this case ever came in front of the Supreme Court, however, it is likely the court would disregard all previous definitions and rule that Obama is a natural born citizen. They would likely disregard any evidence of a fake Birth Certificate as well. Obama was sworn in as president two years ago, and they would not have the nerve to remove him from office after all this time.

More details about his Birth Certificate will surely come out over time. There are many things about his past, school records, a Connecticut Social Security Number, and passport records (to name a few) that are unexplained or hidden from public view. Most of his life before 2004 has been covered up. In time, probably after he leaves office, it will all come out. It always does.

There is no political advantage for Republicans to pursue the false Birth Certificate. That should have been done in 2008. To do so now, in fact, would be a disservice to their efforts to defeat him politically. Obama is just a figurehead for the Progressive movement, and the GOP will need to defeat him on the issues or their calls for a return to conservatism won’t really matter anyway.

Two terror suspects arrested by NYPD

New York City undercover detectives arrested two male suspects who purchased weapons as part of an alleged terror plot to impersonate Jewish worshippers in synagogues and then randomly murder members of the congregations by planting an improvised explosive device (IED), a police source told the Law Enforcement Examiner.

The suspects were identified as 26-year old Ahmed Ferhan and 21-year old Mohamed Mamdouh both of North African. They were alleged to have said they planned to attack the Empire State Building, as well.

“[Police officers] arrested two men who said they wanted to destroy a major synagogue in Manhattan and then purchased several weapons and a grenade from an undercover officer,” Mayor Michael Bloomberg stated in a televised news conference.

Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said the men — one naturalized citizen and the other a legal immigrant — were arrested Wednesday immediately after purchasing weapons from an undercover detective.

The two suspects purchased two semi-automatic handguns, a Smith and Wesson revolver, ammunition and a hand grenade during the sting operation, the police source told the Law Enforcement Examiner.

According to the Manhattan District Attorney, the undercover investigation lasted seven months, during which time Ferhani and Mamdouh were heard making plans for horrific attacks against the city’s large Jewish population. The conversations were recorded by detectives.

“They planned visits to Manhattan’s largest synagogues, intending to disguise themselves as Jewish worshippers, attend services at a synagogue and, while pretending to pray, leave a bomb in the synagogue,” the Manhattan District Attorney’s office said in a press statement.

“Ferhani discussed, among other things, buying a grenade to throw into a synagogue, buying a gun with a silencer, and buying multiple guns to use as part of the plan in case they were caught. He discussed learning to build bombs so he could blow up a synagogue,” said the D.A.’s media statement.

New York City is no stranger to terrorist attacks. The city has been victim to radical Hispanic terrorists (FALN), radical leftists such as the Weather Underground, and the first attack on the World Trade Center in 1993. The largest terrorist attack in U.S. history on September 11, 2001 occurred in Manhattan.

The city has been on high alert since U.S. Navy SEALs killed Osama bin Laden in Pakistan on May 1.

Mayor Mike Bloomberg said during his press conference that there had been 13 terrorist plots against New York since the September 11, 2001 mass murder of nearly 3,000 people at the World Trade Center.

Officials described the pair as Islamist extremists, but said they were “lone wolves” not connected to any formal group such as al-Qaeda.

“They did it for Jihad,” District Attorney Cyrus Vance said in his press statement.

“He was fed up with the way Muslims were being treated around the world. ‘They’re treating us like dogs,'” Commissioner Kelly quoted one defendant as saying.

“We will blow up the synagogue in Manhattan and take out the entire building,” Kelly quoted a suspect as saying.
