Is Rush Limbaugh Afraid of Obama?

I am a loyal, and nearly every day, listener of the Rush Limbaugh Show. I have begun to wonder what is up with him and the other conservatives who so adamantly oppose Barack Obama. Rush spends 3 hours a day, Monday through Friday railing about Obama and his policies. Rush says Obama is the most dangerous man in America (not a quote) yet ignores the biggest weak spot Obama possesses, the “natural born citizen” issue.

We know that Obama Sr. was a Kenyan, and therefore a citizen of Great Britain. Article 2, Section 1, Paragraph 5 states that to be president a person must be a “natural born citizen” of the United States of America. The Naturalization Act of 1790, and an 1875 Supreme Court decision, Minor vs. Happersett (88 US 162) define the term “Natural Born Citizen”. There are other cases that have discussed this issue and have come down on the side of Obama not being eligible to hold the office of President of the United States.

A recent Georgia case was decided in Obama’s favor despite the fact that neither Obama nor his lawyer showed up, ignoring a lawful subpoena. The Judge, Michael Malihi, told the plaintiffs’ lawyers he would render a default judgment in their favor due to Obama snubbing the subpoena. But when all was said and done Malihi used a minor court decision from Indiana to find in Obama’s favor, totally ignoring an act of Congress, the Naturalization Act of 1790; and a Supreme Court decision, Minor vs. Happersett. This decision is being appealed and many wonder what happened to change the judge’s mind in only 6 days. What made this judge totally reverse course in such a short time when he had ample evidence to support a finding of “ineligible” and no evidence to refute the case presented by the plaintiffs? Was he paid off? Was he threatened? No one knows why the decision came down the way it did under the circumstances. I wrote about it at the time from the perspective that our republic is no more.

As I see this from a non-lawyer perspective I see coercion of some sort. Naturally I can’t prove anything, but when I look at all the facts at my disposal I can’t come to any other conclusion. I look at this and then think about Limbaugh, Hannity, Boortz, Levin, O’Reilly, Coulter, and all the other conservative pundits taking a pass on this issue. It makes me ask, “Why will they not even talk about this issue, other than ridiculing those who address Obama’s eligibility”?

What is there that prevents the biggest radio audience in the nation, and maybe beyond our borders from hearing Rush confront this issue head on? Why is it that the most powerful voice in media won’t touch the most important issue of our day? As painful as it is for me to admit, I find myself wondering why Limbaugh and the others, but especially Rush, take the same stand as MSNBC, CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, NPR, and the rest of the “main stream media”. Rush is brilliant, and I thought fearless for the cause of liberty, but his silence on this makes me wonder.

I figure Rush and the rest are aware of the situation because I cannot imagine this is unknown to any media person anywhere, and certainly cannot possibly escape a man of Rush’s abilities. I know all about it and I am not a media professional by any stretch of the imagination. I don’t get paid to find out about news stories. I do it because I care about my country, the Constitution, and the future of my grandchildren. I am not saying Rush and the others don’t care about America, but it makes me wonder where their priorities are when they can ignore the most important story of the last 50 years.

If Rush really thinks Obama is so dangerous and wants him out of office so bad why isn’t he raising this issue on a daily basis? Is he concerned about the reaction from Obama’s FCC? Does he fear the “Fairness Doctrine”? Is he concerned about the reaction of his advertisers? We saw Glenn Beck get booted off of FOX News for his reporting of the truth about Islam and the nuts who follow that pagan cult. Now we have seen Judge Andrew Napolitano get booted for hard hitting reporting on issues not to the liking of the Saudi Prince who owns 7% of FOX, and George Soros who also has his hands in the till there. Is Obama involved in Judge Napolitano’s dismissal also?

We the People only have so many resources to solve these issues. We can’t depend on the main stream media because everyone knows the leftist media is determined to destroy this nation, whatever it takes. When we can’t depend on the “conservative” media to stand in the gap, where do we go?

Allen West said, when questioned about the Obama eligibility issue, that it is “political suicide” for any politician to confront it. That tells me all I need to know about the courage of politicians, including Allen West. The only candidate running for any office that will take this on is John Dummett, a very dark horse candidate for the Republican Party presidential nomination. Dummett has a lawsuit to be heard in Tennessee on February 24, 2012. Dummett also has lawsuits pending in several other states and  in federal court in Arizona. If we had others candidates like Dummett, with the courage to stand for freedom first and a political career second, our nation would not be in the throes of death right now.

Rush Limbaugh, with the biggest audience in any form of media, could force the cowards in Congress to confront this issue if he would. Rush, along with others like Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, and Neal Boortz could bring this to a boiling point but they won’t. WHY??????

I submit this in the name of the Most Holy Trinity, in faith, with the responsibility given to me by Almighty God to honor His work and not let it die from neglect.

  1. Very interesting questions that you have raised here Bob. The leftist-media puppets have made the Obama eligibility issues taboo to speak about, therefor the cowards in this country refuse to engage in any discussion about it.

    There are three simple words that tell me all I need to know about our current White House occupier: Barack Hussein Obama.

  2. Rush knows a few people who he can call and confirm that the natural Born Citizen Issue is a dead letter. Those who are “bitter clingers” do so at the risk of their own stupidity.

    1. Geez, know your propaganda statements Rob.. the bitter clingers rhetoric came out of Barack Hussein ( isnt that an all-American Christian name?)Obama’s mouth in the “clinging to their bibles and guns,statement which I plan to do till I die.

  3. Of course folks could equate the questions of media ownership to the owners of some 65% of all the mainstream media corps, through front companies, etc. Who would that be? tick tock….

  4. Neglect or denial of the importance of VETTING to the well-being of The Republic is a critical issue.
    Valid concerns under Art. 2, Sec. 1, 5 of the Constitution arose prior to 2008 elections – as to Obummer, they are still unresolved and are arising again, currently w/ candidate Mitt Romney & VP prospect Rubio. Maybe someone needs to pose the “Natural Born” question to Judge Napalitano (Italian heritage ?) now that Ron Paul has put his name forth as possible VP choice.
    The importance of Romney’s & Rubio qualifications coming into question at this point in time is because it provides the Congress with reason to open debate on the issue of pre-vetting of POTUS candidates without a direct stigma of attack on Obummer and addressing the issue of presidential succession that can circumvent a VP not a “natural born citizen”.
    These two provide justification of the moment but once the issue is formally advanced in the House of Reps., it can quickly, and with every justification, be expanded to encompass our present IMPOSTOR POTUS!!
    What a splendid opportunity for retiring Republican Reps to leave a lasting footprint for liberty!!
    It’s a “No Brainer”!!!!

  5. Rush/Sean/Levin/Coulter/Savage/etc… are all corporate hawkers of products!!…these punks aren’t conservatives, they are actors! suckering folk to purchase these corporate sponsors goods & services, PERIOD!…while they sit on their fat asses making millions of dollars!…it’s in their best interest to have a Barack Hussien obama to remain president…because US SUCKERS will continue to listen to them, day in and day out, as they toy with our REAL passion for this country!!..unlike these jerk-offs!

    1. Then boycott thier products if it upsets you that much. So what they make money, it’s called capitalism, you know the word the president is trying to make dissapear.

  6. Bob Russell, Amen. You said it! This willful indifference by avowed conservatives to the obomb’s peremptory violation of the constitution by the fact of his illegal election to the office of president is astonishing and stupefying. The only explanation as to why all these so-called conservative pundits are silent on this epic scandal is that there is money involved. Who will “follow the money” and expose these cowards and hypocrites?

  7. I googled if americans are afraid of Barack and many many americans are! They said gun sales went way up!! Now we have to worry about our kids playing outside, and we have to loose our freedoms if he remains in office many people don’t even pay attention to politics but always have something to say this is suppose to be the best interest of all involved and if americans realized how scared many other americans are they would vote right
