The WHY initiative is a new movement that evolved out of
efforts by the Citizen Wells blog US Constitution Hall of Shame
and Democratic Disaster (now Restore the Constitutional Republic)
and others to inform congressmen before the general election
and before Congress certified the Electoral College votes.
We are taking this effort nationwide and will be asking for
volunteers. Our initial efforts are to get some straight answers
on Obama’s eligibility and upholding the US Constitution. This
will continue on through the 2010 election cycle and beyond. We
must hold Congress accountable to the US Constitution and
American people.

Here are some exerpts from The WHY Initiative: Holding Congress Accountable

Prologue
“I am writing this as a concerned American, not as a Democrat, Republican,
Independent or other political position. I dislike modern political
parties, although in honesty, I am more disgusted with the modern day
Democrat party. We need more statesmen, less politics and putting
America first. I promise you I will go after Republicans with the same
veracity that I question Democrats.

You, I and most Americans have let this happen. Like the frog slowly
cooking in a pot of water, not realizing that it is being cooked, we
have allowed our institutions, like Congress and the Judicial as well
as the MSM, to cook our brains into a stupor of submission. Television
screens, just like the screens in the homes of “1984″ have brought us
just the “news” that the modern day Big Brother, the Obama Camp, wants
us to hear. Revisionist history and adoration of Big Brother.

The changes in this country did not occur overnight and our attempts
to restore obedience to the US Constitution and responsible institutions
will take time and effort. We have been given a wake up call. Just as the
“shot heard round the world” was a wake up call for the patriots of the
American Revolution, we must sieze this unique moment in history and
rise to the occasion. We have seen what will happen if we choose to do
otherwise. Join us in making Congress accountable to the American public.”

From the Mario Apuzzo lawsuit

“110. When so much doubt has been expressed in the public arena about Obama’s
eligibility to be President, Congress had a duty to investigate and confirm for
the sake of the Constitution and the plaintiffs and other American people which
it represents if Obama is so qualified by holding a Congressional hearing and
investigation on the matter with full subpoena power. Endnote 17.”

From Dean Haskins:

“The Death of Common Sense

The Birth of The WHY Initiative”

“Exactly when did common sense die in this country? Obviously, it has
been on life support for some time; but now that our collective national
synapses have stopped firing, we aren’t even in an era of philosophical
“gray.””

“By now, those reading this have likely heard all the constitutional
reasoning regarding the ineligibility of the UPOTUS (Unconstitutional
President of the United States).  However, in spite of our undaunted
pleas to our elected officials, it appears they continue to suffer a
profound inability to discern between truth and fiction.
In response to the many inquiries they have received, they continue to
reply with faulty logic, misinformation, and outright lies.  And, we
are becoming more and more aware of the fact that many, if not all, of
our correspondence with them has never even reached them.  There is a
fortified firewall between the elected officials and their constituents. 
That moat is commonly referred to as “staffers.”  I have been told that
many of the staffers simply toss the inquiries, and their bosses never
even see them.
From the many replies that people have received from the offices of
elected officials (for I am now very careful not to say that they are
actual responses from the officials themselves), there is an Orwellian
pattern of damaged brain matter in their words.  Here are some of the
more common blights of misinformation being proffered by this
inexplicable class of political zombies:”

We have created a new blog, Congress Watch, to place not only the
dialogue we have with congressmen during the WHY Initiative, but
going forward into and beyond the 2010 Elections. We will also
put information there to help convince congressmen that we do
indeed have a constitutional crisis with a usurper as president.
Letters of support and concern from the military will be posted
as well as efforts throughout the country to get congressmen to
listen to their constituents and obey the US Constitution.

We have already been in touch with concerned citizens and other
internet sites. Congress Watch belongs to the people just as the
US Constitution belongs to the people. We are seeking involvement
from other bloggers, internet sites and concerned Americans to
help in this endeavor. Sadly, our best efforts, hurried as they were
before the general election and Congress convening, fell on deaf
ears. That will not happen this time. Their apathy, arrogance
or other defects will be met with resolve of knowing that many
of them will seek reelection in 2010. They cannot ignore us for
very long.

We now have time to organize properly. We will get by congressional
aides to get answers from congressmen. A team of “experts” will
be available to answer questions in a professional manner, but
we will not accept defeat. We will demand straight answers from
congressmen.

What can you do to help?

Dean Haskins, who became chairman of Restore the Constitutional
Republic in January, has reorganized and secured the website
as a .com. We are requesting that those who want to organize
state efforts or assist to get the attention of their congressmen
go there and sign up:

http://www.restoretheconstitutionalrepublic.com

The efforts to get the attention of congressmen will be more
orderly than past efforts. We realize that the people of each
state are more apt to have insights into the office hours
and local meeting habits of their elected officials. We will
have our “experts” available as needed. The experts will not
be intimidated.

We are also asking for volunteers to help with Congress Watch.
Once again, we have short term and long term goals, however
the objective is always the same, holding Congress accountable.
Bloggers, internet sites or concerned citizens, if you would
like to help keep Congress Watch up to date with information
on congressmen and nationwide initiatives, leave a comment
on the blog:

We must seize the moment to regain trust in government and
control of this country.

God bless.

Citizen Wells
Many in this country are concerned about Barack Obama holding the
office of the presidency coupled with Democrats such as Nancy
Pelosi, et al controlling Congress. The “Stimulus” bill, that is
being ramrodded through Congress is also troubling. However, I,
along with others such as Dean Haskins of Restore the Constitutional
Republic, are more concerned about an illegal president and trampling
on the US Constitution.

Many Americans, and websites such as this blog made extensive efforts
before the general election to inform state election officials,
Electoral College Electors and members of Congress of the eligibility
issues surrounding Obama. Our efforts fell on deaf ears. Party politics
amd  misinformation ruled. We officially entered a manifested state
of Orwellian, “1984” like revisionist history, Thought Police and
doublespeak.

Thousands of Americans are outraged at the disregard for the US
Constitution and rule of law. Numerous lawsuits were initiated to
get all levels of courts to uphold the law. Many lawsuits are still
active. Electoral College Electors voted by party dictates, state
election officials passed the buck and Congress failed to do it’s
duty as part of this country’s checks and balances system. Despite
the numerous lawsuits, despite the efforts of thousands of constituents
and despite their duty to uphold the Constitution, Congress failed
the American public. On February 3, 2009 Rasmussen reported that the
Democrat controlled Congress had an approval rating of 12 %.

On January 8, 2009, Congress met to count and verify the Electoral
College votes. The Electoral College had failed to do their constitutional
duty and protect the American public from a usurper. Members of Congress,
who took an oath to defend the Constitution and having been notified
of Obama’s eligibility issues, had an obligation and legal duty to
challenge the Electoral College votes for an illegal candidate. From
Federal  election law:

UNITED STATES CODE

The following provisions of law governing Presidential Elections are
contained in Chapter 1 of Title 3, United States Code (62 Stat. 672,
as amended):

TITLE 3 THE PRESIDENT

Chapter 1. Presidential Elections and Vacancies

Counting electoral votes in congress
§ 15.
“Upon such reading of any such certificate or paper, the President of
the Senate shall call for objections, if any. Every objection shall
be made in writing, and shall state clearly and concisely, and without
argument, the ground thereof, and shall be signed by at least one Senator
and one Member of the House of Representatives before the same shall be
received. When all objections so made to any vote or paper from a State
shall have been received and read, the Senate shall thereupon withdraw,
and such objections shall be submitted to the Senate for its decision;”

No member of Congress issued a challenge and Senate President, Dick Cheney
did not call for objections as prescribed by law.

Conspiracy definitions from Wikipedia:

Conspiracy (civil), an agreement between persons to deceive, mislead, or
defraud others of their legal rights, or to gain an unfair advantage.
 
Conspiracy (crime), an agreement between persons to break the law in the
future, in some cases having committed an act to further that agreement.
 
Conspiracy (political), a plot to overthrow a government

From the Mario Appuzo lawsuit that includes
the Congress of the US as one of the defendants.
Filed in US District Court in NJ:

“102. No other political institution has a Constitutional duty to verify the
Constitutional qualifications of a President Elect.

103. Hence, the last political institution to make sure Obama is eligible and
qualified to be President was Congress under the Twentieth Amendment.

104. The Twentieth Amendment also provides procedure for what happens if the
President Elect does not qualify for the office to which he has been elected.

105. Each member of the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate has a duty to
the plaintiffs and the American people to do his or her due diligence and
demand all necessary records and question all necessary witnesses to determine
the true identity and eligibility of any would-be President.

106. Obama, as the President Elect, was subject to the “qualification” clause of
the 20th Amendment from December 15, 2008, when the Electoral College voted for
him.

107. On January 8, 2009, Congress in Joint Session confirmed Obama as the next
President of the United States even though he is not an Article II “natural
born Citizen.” Endnote 16.

108. Hence, Congress had from December 15, 2008 to and including January 8,
2009 to hold a fact finding hearing and subpoena documents and investigate the
challenges publicly expressed by plaintiffs and thousands of other Americans
regarding whether Obama is an Article II “natural born Citizen” and which were
even the subject of numerous law suits filed in our nation’s courts.

109. Thus Congress had over 3 weeks to hold a public hearing in the Senate,
House, or both to investigate the issue but they did not.

110. When so much doubt has been expressed in the public arena about Obama’s
eligibility to be President, Congress had a duty to investigate and confirm for
the sake of the Constitution and the plaintiffs and other American people which
it represents if Obama is so qualified by holding a Congressional hearing and
investigation on the matter with full subpoena power. Endnote 17.

111. Even though Congress was well aware of the thousands of people including
the plaintiffs who had petitioned Congress so that it could properly investigate
Obama’s qualifications to be President (Endnote 18 ) and that no court of law had
accepted any case raising the issue because of standing or some other procedural
obstacle, Congress violated the Twentieth Amendment by failing to assure that
Obama meets the eligibility requirements of Article II and confirming him as
President at a time when there was and continued to be such a national debate
regarding Obama’s Article II eligibility to be President.”

The level of outrage due to the US Constitution being trampled on has erupted
into a loud united voice from millions of Americans who have watched in disbelief
as the Executive, Judicial and Legislative branches of government have failed
them. This outrage comes from all strata of society including attorneys, business
people, regular Americans and many in the military.

 Consider the following letter:

Charles E. Jones
Brigadier General US Air Force, Retired
Lifetime subject to recall for active duty
Recipient of the Distinguished Service Medal (AF)
02.04.09

“We the People of the United States of America” are entitled to know
the legal qualifications of the President and Commander in Chief. 
For the better good and National Security of “We the People of the
United States” and for Absolute Command of the Military Forces of the
United States, I whole heartedly support the efforts of Dr. Orly Taitz,
ESQ for taking legal action to determine whether or not Barack Hussein
 Obama, aka Barry Soetoro, Citizen of Indonesia and possibly citizen
of Kenya, is eligible to become President of the United States and
Commander in Chief of the United States Armed Forces.

Thanks to Zach Jones is Home blog for the letter.

The Citizen Wells blog instituted the US Constitution Hall of Shame before the
general election to increase public awareness of Obama’s ineligibility to be
president and to hold accountable congressmen and other public officials. It
was hoped that those charged with upholding the US Constitution and protecting
the American public would get the message and vet Obama. That obviously did not
occur. The 2010 election campaigns will begin soon. Many of us still want answers
from congressmen as to why they believed that Obama was eligible and why no
member of Congress challenged Obama’s eligibility.

This is the formal announcement of a new initiative to hold
Congress accountable. The Citizen Wells blog, in conjunction
with Dean Haskins of Restore the Constitutional Republic and
many other concerned citizens, has begun the process of
contacting members of Congress to ask them why they believed
Obama was eligible and why no one challenged him. The American
public deserves to know the truth. Why did Congress not do
it’s job?

Was there a conspiracy?

Were people afraid of personal attacks?

Was there fear of riots?

Did every member believe Obama was eligible?

If so, why?

The WHY initiative.

We will if necessary, contact every member of Congress and will not take no
response as an answer. We have begun contacting 2 members, representative Sue
Myrick of NC and Senator Jim DeMint of SC. The responses we have received from
their aides is less than satisfactory. We will get answers from them.

Consider the following responses:

From Sue Myrick’s office.
Polk, Andy :Andy.Polk@mail.house.gov

“ohhh- I understand it correctly based on US Supreme Court cases interpreting
what “natural born citizen” Constitutionally means.  Had he not met the
definition, Chief Justice Roberts, the worlds leading Constitutional scholar,
would not have sworn him in because he would have violated his duty to uphold
the Constitution.  You can argue with me all you want on this issue, but I can
do nothing for you on this point.  The only thing you can do, if you feel so
strongly about Obama not being a citizen, is file a lawsuit in federal court.”

Sue Myrick, if you are paying attention, you may want to have a staff meeting.
Does Andy Polk speak for you? We intend to find out.

From Jim DeMint’s office:
Ian Headley

“I cannot speak for other Members of Congress and neither can Senator DeMint. 
However, Senator DeMint has looked into the claims with regard to Barack Obama’s
eligibility to hold the office of President.  Multiple court cases have reached
the Supreme Court, through the legal framework of our nation.  Each case has
since been dismissed.  It appears from all evidence available, the President was
qualified under the Constitution for Congress to certify the electoral college
vote.”

We eagerly await the opportunity to sit and have a dialogue with Senator DeMint.
Mr. Headley has stated that Senator DeMint examined all evidence available.
Perhaps they will share this evidence with the American public.

However, the smoking gun question still remains. The type of question that a
fifth grader can understand. If Obama was eligible, why did he employ an
army of attorneys and expend so many resources to avoid producing the evidence
that he was qualified.

Here is the email correspondence between Dean Haskins and Senator DeMint’s
office:

http://restoretheconstitutionalrepublic.org/wordpress/?p=86  

The comments from Senator DeMint’s office are fairly typical of those received
before Congress met on January 8, 2009. Here is an example from the US
Constitution Hall of Shame. A letter received from Senator Barbara Mikulski
of Maryland:

“Thank you for getting in touch with me. It’s nice to hear from you.

I appreciate knowing of your concern over a rumor that President-elect Obama is ineligible to serve as President because he is not a U.S. citizen.

The Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution states that “all persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States.” Since President-elect Obama was born in Hawaii two years after it was admitted as the 50th state, he is a natural-born citizen. He has released a copy of his birth certificate and it has been authenticated by experts. Following Obama’s overwhelming and undisputed victory in the recent election, the Supreme Court has considered challenges to his citizenship and dismissed them as being without merit.

Thanks again for contacting me. Please do not hesitate to let me know if I can be of assistance to you again in the future.

Sincerely,
Barbara A. Mikulski
United States Senator”

Here is the analysis of the letter:

1. “rumor that President-elect Obama is ineligible”
This is no rumor, it is a fact.

2. “Since President-elect Obama was born in Hawaii two years after
it was admitted as the 50th state, he is a natural-born citizen.”
Being born in Hawaii does not make Obama a natural born citizen.

3. “He has released a copy of his birth certificate”
He has not released a copy of his birth certificate!!!
Pay attention! He put up a highly suspect COLB on his site.
Learn more about Hawaii statutes below.

4. “it has been authenticated by experts”
You can’t authenticate what you do not have access to.

5. “the Supreme Court has considered challenges to his citizenship
and dismissed them as being without merit.”
The Supreme Court has dismissed none of the eligibility based
lawsuits on not having merit. Berg’s lawsuit is still before the
Supreme Court.
Visit the US Constitution Hall of Shame here. Read more letters
from congressmen and learn why Obama is ineligible.

This effort is now underway. It is the proverbial first step in a
“journey of a thousand miles.” We will get to the truth of this
matter and we will need your help. Information on how you can help
we be provided soon. In the meantime, let your congressmen know that
we mean business, now and going forward.  Let them know that their
constituents want them to discuss these issues with our
representatives
. We will be keeping a close eye on them. Forever.

US Constitution Hall of Shame, 2008 Election, US Congress, Senators, Representatives, Constitutional crisis, Electoral College votes, Connecticut, Secretary of State, CT Supreme Court Justice, Attorney General, Susan Bysiewicz, Chase T. Rogers, Richard Blumenthal

This is the kickoff article on a series called “Constitution Hall of Shame.”
It is clear that we already have a constitutional crisis in the country before
Barack Obama theoretically gets inaugurated. The US Constitution has been
ignored, misunderstood and trampled on during the 2008 election year. We not
only have a candidate, Obama, that is clearly ineligible, but probably is not
a US citizen, i.e, illegal alien. Barack Obama, who has sworn to uphold the
Constitution, has thumbed his nose at the rule of law and American public.
So, to add to the normal political bias and posturing and tradition based
election processes, we now have a total disregard for the US Constitution.

The US Congress will meet soon to count and authenticate the Electoral
College vote.

“January 8, 2009

Counting Electoral Votes in Congress
Public Law 110-430 changed the date of the electoral vote in Congress in 2009
from January 6 to January 8. This date change is effective only for the 2008
presidential election. The Congress meets in joint session to count the
electoral votes (Congress may pass a law to change the date). The President
of the Senate is the presiding officer. If a Senator and a House member jointly
submit an objection, each House would retire to its chamber to consider it.
The President and Vice President must achieve a majority of electoral votes
(270) to be elected. In the absence of a majority, the House selects the
President, and the Senate selects the Vice President. If a State submits
conflicting sets of electoral votes to Congress, the two Houses acting
concurrently may accept or reject the votes. If they do not concur, the votes
of the electors certified by the Governor of the State would be counted in
Congress.” Read more

Since the Electoral College vote can be challenged in Congress, we will focus
on senators and representatives that have made comments that clearly indicate
that they do not take their oath of office seriously. We will give them a
chance to respond and atone for their dereliction of duty. This will also
serve as a forum to educate and hold accountable their colleagues.

The first member of the Constitution Hall of Shame is not a congressman. It
is the state of Connecticut and includes the Secretary of State, Susan
Bysiewicz, State Supreme Court Justice Chase T. Rogers and State Attorney
General Richard Blumenthal. Here is the damning paragraph in a
letter received from Susan Bysiewicz:

“On November 3, 2008 Connecticut State Supreme Court Chief Justice
Chase T. Rogers dismissed the case after hearing testimony from my
attorneys and State Attorney General Richard Blumenthal and the
Greenwich resident who filed the action.  The plaintiff, Cort Wrotnowski,
alleged that I should not have placed Senator Obama’s name on the ballot.
The court was satisfied that officials in Hawaii have stated
that there is no doubt that the Democratic presidential candidate
was born there and that the state’s health department possesses
Senator Obama’s original birth certificate.  This is now a matter
of public record
.”


Why Obama is not eligible

What Hawaii Health Official really said

From the Alan Keyes lawsuit

“A press release was issued on October 31, 2008, by the Hawaii Department
of Health by its Director, Dr. Chiyome Fukino. Dr. Fukino said that she
had “personally seen and verified that the Hawaii State Department of
Health has Senator Obama’s original birth certificate on record in
accordance with state policies and procedures.” That statement failed to
resolve any of the questions being raised by litigation and press accounts.
Being “on record” could mean either that its contents are in the computer
database of the department or there is an actual “vault” original.”

“Further, the report does not say whether the birth certificate in the
“record” is a Certificate of Live Birth or a Certificate of Hawaiian Birth.
In Hawaii, a Certificate of Live Birth resulting from hospital documentation,
including a signature of an attending physician, is different from a
Certificate of Hawaiian Birth. For births prior to 1972, a Certificate of
Hawaiian Birth was the result of the uncorroborated testimony of one witness
and was not generated by a hospital. Such a Certificate could be obtained up
to one year from the date of the child’s birth. For that reason, its value
as prima facie evidence is limited and could be overcome if any of the
allegations of substantial evidence of birth outside Hawaii can be obtained.
The vault (long Version) birth certificate, per Hawaiian Statute 883.176
allows the birth in another State or another country to be registered in
Hawaii. Box 7C of the vault Certificate of Live Birth contains a question,
whether the birth was in Hawaii or another State or Country. Therefore,
the only way to verify the exact location of birth is to review a certified
copy or the original vault Certificate of Live Birth and compare the name of
the hospital and the name and the signature of the doctor against the
birthing records on file at the hospital noted on the Certificate of the
Live Birth.”

So, Susan Bysiewicz, Chase T. Rogers, Richard Blumenthal,
what is your excuse?

Ignorance
Apathy
Party politics
Fear

Please respond with your reasons for your behaviour.

An apology to the American public is in order.
