Why Trump Must Be Marginalized for Birth Certificate Inquiry

By Jerry A. Kane

It looks like the vicious attacks on the Donald by White House aides and leftist columnists has prodded at least one gatekeeper publication to ask why the Ruler’s minions are out attacking him with such force and vengeance for asking to see the Ruler’s original birth certificate.

When Investor’s Business Daily columnist Douglas Mackinnon asked a high-level Democrat in Washington, DC, why there was an all-out assault on Trump, he was told that the Donald had “touched the third rail of Obama’s mysterious birth certificate and the White House and those who advocate for the president in the media are petrified that Trump’s very name, stature and ability to generate headlines is going to give the subject a whole new life. Therefore, they have “to belittle him and marginalize him as quickly as possible before more voters start to pay attention and ask questions.”

“As Trump elevates the platform holding these questions, it’s fairly obvious why at least politically, the White House and its unethical defenders in the mainstream media would try to eviscerate him. Of course, by doing so, they themselves are now bringing renewed attention to the subject of Barack Obama’s birthplace, his missing-in-action original birth certificate and the qualifications to be president as spelled out in our Constitution.”—Douglas Mackinnon

Trump knows that he could end up king or kingmaker if he succeeds in exposing the biggest fraud ever perpetuated on the people of the United States.  And what is the Donald if he’s not thinking big and kicking ass to make the big deal?

Federal Election Commission records show that the Ruler has paid the Perkins Coie law firm $2.3 million since he first announced his campaign for presidency in January 2007 to thwart lawsuits challenging his eligibility to be president. DC lawyer Robert Bauer of Perkins Coie has been fighting in the courts to keep the Ruler from having to produce his original birth certificate, which would verify his eligibility.

Besides his original birth certificate, the Ruler has concealed his passport, medical records, baptism records, adoption records, Illinois State Bar Association records, client list from his private practice, files from his tenure as an Illinois state senator, kindergarten records, Punahou School records, Occidental College records, Columbia University records, Columbia thesis, Harvard Law School records, Harvard Law Review articles, and University of Chicago scholarly articles.

“If only we had some honest and unbiased investigative reporters who could actually look into the subject and put it to rest once and for all. I guess that’s just too much to ask.”—Douglas Mackinnon

The Ruler’s stonewalling brings to mind the scandal surrounding the 18-and-a-half missing minutes from the conversation between President Richard Nixon and chief of staff H.R. Haldeman following the 1972 break-in at the Democratic National Committee’s offices at the Watergate Hotel in Washington, DC.

Inquiring minds want to know why Ann Coulter and the gatekeepers at the American Spectator, National Review, and Human Events refuse to believe that the Ruler has a duty to prove his eligibility knowing that his hat is in the ring again for 2012 and that the birth certificate issue is creating even greater divides among the people and damaging the nation’s welfare?

I’m inquisitive … I’m waiting …

Having just passed a law giving bugs, trees, and all living things in nature the same rights as humans, now Bolivia plans to table a draft United Nations treaty that will recognize “Mother Earth” as a living entity having the same rights as human beings.

The document will most likely mirror the South American country’s Law of the Rights of Mother Earth, which grants terra rights to life, water, clean air, freedom from pollution, and reparations for livelihoods affected by human activities.

Bolivia’s law also establishes a Ministry of Mother Earth and provides an ombudsman to hear nature’s complaints as channeled through activists, environmental groups, and the state.

A Planned Parenthood fact sheet published in March shows the organization performed 332,278 U.S. abortions in 2009, i.e., PP clinics killed 910 babies per day, 38 per hour, or one every 95 seconds. The nation’s number 1 abortion provider killed almost as many babies as there are people who live in Cincinnati, Ohio. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, 333,012 people lived in Cincy in 2009.

Planned Parenthood has not yet reported how many babies its clinics aborted in 2010.

General Motors is recalling 2,100 Chevrolet Cruzes to make sure that the steering wheel doesn’t break free from the steering column when it’s given a gentle tug or being turned.

At least one driver of the 2011 compact car reported the steering wheel separating from the column while driving. Somehow the driver managed to maneuver the car safely to the side of the road.

In documents filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, GM reported that a wrong wheel had been put on the car, and the mistake was discovered later in the assembly process and the right wheel was put on, but it wasn’t attached properly.

General Motors reported testing other cars from the production run and found no similar problems. According to GM, this was an isolated incident.

John Galligan, the lawyer for Major Nidal Malik Hasan, the “Soldier of Allah” who shouted Allahu akbar while slaughtering 13 U.S. soldiers at Fort Hood, Texas, in November 2009, has revealed that the Ruler and his Bread and Circuses Administration have kept the Islamist from prosecution by withholding evidence in the Fort Hood attack.

On March 30, the outgoing commanding general at Fort Hood, Lt. Gen. Robert Cone, granted a request from Galligan to delay the trial until late April, but Hasan’s lawyer says he’s not to be blamed for all the delays.

“Delays are due to prosecution/White House refusal to disclose evidence. Blame them for the delays.”—John Galligan, responding to an email blaming him for delaying Hasan’s trial

During a “Stand Up for Women’s Health” rally sponsored by the National Organization for Women, NARAL and Planned Parenthood, New York Democrat Congresswoman Louise Slaughter said that the newly elected Republicans to the House of Representatives came to Congress “to kill women.”

“In ’94 people were elected simply to come here to kill the National Endowment for the Arts. Now they’re here to kill women.”

Slaughter went on to tell those in attendance at the National Mall in Washington, D.C., that Republican efforts to oppose taxpayer-funded abortions resemble those taken by Nazis.

“You are allowed to have an abortion if you have been raped or it’s a matter of incest. However, you have to keep a receipt. Did you know that? It’s sort of like an old German Nazi movie. Show me your papers!”

Is Glenn Beck a Christian or a Proselytizing Morman on a Mission?

By Bob Anderson

Right off the bat let me say that I do not for a moment question Glenn Beck’s patriotism.  I once admired of Beck for his conservative, political positions.  However, Beck has become gradually more and more religiously and spiritually oriented.  Now, hardly a TV show goes by that he doesn’t talk as much about God, spirituality, or the coming apocalypse as he does about politics, although he often manages to weave the former into the latter. 

Beck, a Roman Catholic convert to Mormonism, claims to be a Christian, but to rephrase President Ronald Reagan’s well-known line about liberals, the trouble with Beck is not that he is ignorant, but that he knows so much about Christianity that isn’t so. I will expound upon this later in the article.

Recent reports have Beck starting his own television network ala Oprah Winfrey.  According to a New York Times Internet story, Beck and senior Fox News executive Joel Cheatwood may soon join forces at Beck’s Mercury Radio Arts Company when both of their contracts with Fox expire at the end of the year.  The story points out that Beck could also expand his current Web show that currently charges fans $9.95 a month for access.  Media consultant Larry Kramer compares Beck to Arianna Huffington and Howard Stern who have each parlayed their personalities into media empires.

Why would Beck want to start his own cable channel?  Well, for starters money.  Beck reportedly earned $4 million last year from his Web operations, compared to “only” two million from Fox.  However beyond the money, like Oprah Winfrey who has started a cable network to promote her new age beliefs, Beck also would have more opportunity to preach his Mormon spiritually unabated.  Make no mistake, Beck’s a true believer in the Mormon doctrine.  Yet, I have often heard Christians make statements such as, “He must be a Christian, look at his values, good works and his attempt to return America to its Christian roots.” 

First of all, there is debate as to how many of the Founding Fathers were actually biblical Christians.  Many no doubt were, some weren’t.  Some were Deists, Free Masons, or followed the philosophy of the Enlightenment, and at least one was an atheist.  But the biggest mistake Christians make is naively assuming that Beck is a Christian, or that the various Christian leaders that he has had on his programs have led him to biblical salvation.  Nothing could be further from the truth.  Beck dispels any such speculation in his testimony available on line, as well as in a book he coauthored with psychiatrist Keith Ablow Seven Wonders That Will Change Your Life.

In the book Beck states that he treated Mormonism as a “hostile witness,” even checking out anti-Mormon literature (he doesn’t state what literature he checked out) but says that most of it was “unfair or just plain wrong.”  He says he “tried every trick I could think of to find a contradiction” to Mormon doctrine and couldn’t find one.  Either he wasn’t looking in the right places or he was self-deluded before doing the research. He says that Mormonism seems to explain the world and his place in it better than any other faith.  “It answered many spiritual questions that had gone unanswered for me for my entire life.”  (Seven Wonders That Will Change Your Life, p. 149)

One of the first books Beck claims to have read in his search for God was New Age advocate James Redfield’s The Celestial Prophecy.  No wonder Beck was drawn to Mormon doctrine, which is also very New Age. Some Christian apologists have dubbed Mormon founder Joseph Smith “America’s first New Age Prophet,” in as much as Mormonism has far more in common with Hinduism than it does with Christianity.

Unfortunately, to prove Beck’s wide acceptance among Christians, he was asked to speak at the 2010 commencement at Liberty University (the nation’s largest evangelical college) with the assumption that his speech would be on politics and the problems of socialism that the Obama administration was pushing on the country, and not on spiritual matters.

However, Beck changed his speech at the last minute and laced it with religious terms such as atonement, faith, the gospel, the Holy Spirit, and “personal revelations” from God, which of course have a much different meaning and significance for Mormons. Keep in mind that the Mormon God lives on a planet near the star Kolob, has a physical body, and practices polygamy.  The God of the Bible is spirit, John 4:24.  Jesus said a spirit does not have flesh and bone, Luke 24:37-39

 Like he often does on his TV and radio program, Beck exhorted his Liberty audience to “seek truth,” “question everything I have told you,” and “read the scriptures everyday.”  And he received a standing ovation.

Were the scriptures Beck alluded to in his speech meant to include the Book of Mormon, Pearl of Great Price, and Doctrines and Covenants, which are all considered scripture by the Mormon Church?  And what about Joseph Smith’s Inspired Version of the Bible (I.V.) that he personally translated without having any knowledge of the ancient texts just to make sure it was right?  In fact, Mormons believe that only the Bible, among their five authoritative books, contains error.  And according to Smith, the Book of Mormon is “the most correct book ever written.”  Many of the ideas mentioned in Beck’s speech can be found in the Seven Wonders That Will Change Your Life.

So how can Beck continually exhort his audiences to “check out everything” he tells them and “question everything” he says when he doesn’t follow his own admonition?  As I see it, either Beck is a lying hypocrite who tells people to check out things when he knows that he has failed to do so, yet he tells them that he actually has done so to purposely deceive them about the great differences between Mormonism and Christianity, or Beck is seriously deluded about the great disparity between the two faiths.

So how can such an obviously intelligent person like Beck be so deceived?  I would argue that that spiritual deception has nothing to do with intelligence.  Every cult has very intelligent people with graduate degrees who have been deceived.  They are people with master’s degrees and Ph.D.s, and like Beck, they also believe that they have found the truth.

Paul writes in II Corinthians 4: 3-4, “If our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, in whose case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelieving, that they might not see the light of the gospel of Christ, who is the image of God.” In other words, Satan has blinded the minds of the unbelievers so they cannot see and receive the true gospel of Christ.  Please pray that the God of the Bible would remove the veil from Glenn Beck’s eyes, so that he might be saved. What a testimony that would be!
