On a day filled with celebration and retrospection, namely the Inauguration of President Barack Obama, a well-known and respected public-interest attorney, who appears regularly on top television and radio news and talk shows, said on Monday that he refuses to congratulate Obama, and his legal organization released a shockingly harsh statement to explain that refusal.
Larry Klayman, the founder of the successful organization Judicial Watch and a former candidate for the U.S. Senate in Florida — and the only lawyer ever to have obtained a court ruling that a sitting president had committed a crime (which occurred during the Clinton administration) — issued a biting statement on Inauguration Day.
In his statement Klayman declared his refusal “to congratulate Barack Hussein Obama with regard to his inauguration celebration” and his having been illegally sworn in [Sunday] and [Monday] by U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts.
Mr. Klayman said he does not and cannot recognize Obama as President of the United States.
And Klayman is not alone in his suspicions: the majority of Republicans — 64 percent — believe Obama is hiding something about himself while 33 percent of independents and even 14 percent of Democrats agree, New Jersey’s Fairleigh Dickinson University PublicMind survey revealed.
Klayman’s new organization, Freedom Watch, is currently representing voters and a 2012 Presidential candidate, Virgil Goode, in election challenges in Alabama and Florida where it is alleged, according to Klayman, that proof from official government sources exists that reveals Obama is not a “natural born citizen” born in the United States or its territories to two American citizen parents as required by the U.S. Constitution. Klayman and Freedom Watch state that by law Obama should not have run or have been elected for the Office of the President, let alone re-elected and re-inaugurated.
While the vast majority of the members America’s news media, including conservative pundits, believe allegations of Obama’s ineligibility to hold the office of President are not to be taken seriously, there remain numerous Americans who continue to have suspicions, but who are ridiculed and mocked into being silent, notes political strategist and consultant George Reznick.
“While I myself do not ascribe to the allegation that Obama is ineligible to hold the office of president, I don’t believe those who question his eligibility should be mocked or silenced,” said Reznick.
While the political and media establishments frown on questions of Obama’s eligibility, there are cases such as those presently before the Alabama Supreme Court (Alabama CV-2012-1053) where Chief Justice Roy Moore now presides, and the First District Court of Appeal in Florida (1D12-3489).
Klayman noted in his biting statement:
“The biggest fraud in the history of the nation has been perpetrated against the American people. Since Republicans have refused to stand up to Obama’s fraud, which has put him in office now for two successive terms, my clients and other voters around the country have been forced to take legal actions challenging his eligibility to be president.
“Obama, a man who holds little allegiance to our country, and in fact has taken many actions in the last four years which have harmed the national interest, must be held to account in a court of law under the rule of law. Despite judges having thus far been afraid to confront the substantial evidence of Obama’s fraud for fear of retaliation by the Obama administration and other establishment interests, we are hopeful and confident that eventually the truth will be widely known through our ongoing election challenges and other legal actions and that Obama will, like President Richard Nixon during Watergate, be forced to resign. The future of the country and our children and grandchildren hang in the balance.”
