America lacks standing
By Donald Hank

Well, the Donofrio case against Obama (one of the many court cases the media refused to tell you about for months), demanding the showing of a real birth certificate, has failed, and I am getting near-frantic emails from conservatives who had entertained hopes that Donofrio, and hence, justice for all, would prevail.

Here is what I am telling them:

The constitutional damage was first done in 1913 with the institution of the Federal Reserve and income tax, and was almost total by 1973 with Roe v Wade, when some justices unlawfully decided that the Constitution affords a right to kill, and there was no general outcry.

    They stopped defending the unborn, but I wasn't an unborn so I said nothing...

The Constitution was further undermined by G.W. Bush when he decided that, as chief law enforcer, he could pick and choose which of his constitutional duties to fulfill and chose not to comply with his duty to defend our borders. He suggested this was his duty as a Christian, saying on national TV, first, "they are good people looking for a better way of life"...and ending with "it [letting undocumented stay illegally] is good for our soul."

Bush thereby not only overstepped his constitutional bounds but also donned the clerical hat, as though America had anointed him as their Pope, not their president. And here is where "conservatives" got egg on their faces. Many gave him a pass, believing in their hearts that Bush was sent by God as their "ruler" rather than lending him power with the reservation that he uphold the Constitution, as must be done in a Republic. Thus it wasn't Bush who failed. It was American Christians.

McCain did likewise, supporting an illegal bill to give amnesty to lawbreakers. He too played pope, condescendingly calling illegal Mexicans "God's little children." Obama and his party did much the same simply by ignoring the issue.

    They stopped defending the victims of violence by illegal aliens, but I wasn't a victim of violence by illegal aliens, so I said nothing...

Then the president and both candidates strongly supported an unconstitutional role of government in our economy, giving failed banks a trillion dollars in an unprecedented move to blend government and business, plunging the US into full-fledged fascism. A few conservatives bravely pointed to the role played by the Community Reinvestment Act, but then fell silent. (I received a lengthy commentary on the causes of the bank crisis, written by a "conservative" think tank. It failed to even mention the role of the CRA, a Democrat law that forced banks to lend $1 trillion to "underserved communities" notorious for bad credit, high unemployment and welfare entitlements.)

No one in the highest positions is now following the Constitution, let alone showing common sense, so how can anyone contest what Obama is doing?

We didn't protest Wade v Roe, not enough of us protested amnesty and open borders, we allowed these to become non-issues during the campaign — for fear of the big, bad 'bama — and now that the bailout is a fait accompli, few are protesting it any longer. And we wonder why the courts aren't listening when someone protests that an illegal alien is president.

    Then they abandoned me and there was no one left with the moral standing to defend my Constitutional right to a legitimate president.

It was the choice of Americans to ignore the Constitution, and the powerful undercurrent to scrap the Constitution and to substitute it with the public whim du jour may well have too much momentum to stop at this point.

So now, tell me the truth: were you really surprised that Donofrio failed?

And yet, God is still on His throne. Watch closely for His hand now.
