Letter: Who's the real subversive here?

The Obama haters out there make no sense whatsoever. They condemn President Obama as a Muslim because his father was born in Kenya. Four online encyclopedias or atlases show Kenya being about 83 percent Christian and approximately 12 percent Muslim.

Ted Cruz, who is courting these right wing people, is not a natural-born U.S. citizen. He was brought here from Canada and his father was a Cuban citizen who fought with Castro's forces to get communism for Cuba. Every reference you check lists Cuba as a communist country.

By twisted tea partier logic, this would make Cruz a bona fied communist subversive leading our country toward a plutocracy of communist rulers with the rest of us as their serfs.

Frank Harris:

Yes, I have looked at minorities in the governorships. We have 30 Republican Governors this year. Two are Hispanic, Brian Sandoval and Susana Martinez. Two are of Indian descent, Bobby Jindall and Nikki Haley Four are Female.

Compare with the Democrats who only have 20 Governors and only one is a female. Duval Patrick I believe is black.

Yes, the GOP is far ahead in the Gubernatorial races and undoubtedly some will run for POTUS such as the very wonderful Governor Scott Walker whose state libs (labor unions) are so furious that he refused to back down and beat them at their own game, they are on yet one more witch hunt, still trying to catch him doing something wrong.

Hateful and evil but that has become the face of the Democrat Party sadly.

In a sense of fairness. why do Tea Republicans support the FOREIGN born as president yet have questioned the legality of an AMERICAN born to be president for the past 6 years? Wonder how that would change if the Hawaiian was of a lighter complexion and the Calgarian was of a darker complexion?

The Root, who do you think made up the 45% that your irresponsibility cost KRMC? Also, you went to a community-owned non-profit hospital.. Have you heard of how those of you uninsured are dealt with in for-profit corporate hospitals? Please thank all of us residents who paid your bill and we look forward having you in Obamacare - paying your way. Your moniker is accurate - The Root of the Problem.

For those thinking President Obama has ruined it for another minority president, just study the demographic projections. Also look at the growth of minority mayors, governors, legislators. They are coming on up as George Jefferson so often said.

C. Nice, "The last time I checked Mr. Cruz was not elected president..." and we are to value the political opinion of one who has to check who is president?

You have spouted that crap about President Obama's book before. I have read Dreams of My Father and have found it honest and upon completing it gained a tremendous respect for the man who would be president. What book are you referring?

And you question who is responsible for deaths if those insurance companies decided to cancel because of ACA. You went on to say something about presidential lies. Are you referring to the deaths of our soldiers in Iraq and GW's lies? "I really see no difference..."

"Canada (aka Rafale)Ted has one of those U.S. Birth certificates, right?"

Don't know. Maybe so, maybe not. Doesn't matter though does it? He's an American through his mother. Maybe some of my friends never got theirs documented. I know, you never said he wasn't American. You feed the Birthers like an old lady feeding pigeons at the park.

Ridiculous statements? Why don't you and LA get together to compare them? She'd win of course, but you've had a few doozies of your own. No tax money for abortions and Costco worker come to mind?

“They received birth certificates from the hospital which were then converted/documented by U.S. officials.”

And Canada (aka Rafale)Ted has one of those U.S. Birth certificates, right? Oh, wait – no he doesn’t. So, as usual your comment is beyond ridiculous.

“In your world, they are still Italian or German though, right?”

Nope, based on your statement above. However, Canada (aka Rafael) Ted has only a Canadian birth certificate thereby making him a Canadian who holds dual citizenship. And he may disavow his Canadian citizenship, but no matter how you want to spin it he is and always will be a Canadian having been born in Canada with ONLY a Canadian birth certificate to prove it. Why you insist upon parsing the facts is beyond me – but not surprising because righties never get anything correct.

And of course none of the above endangers his potential of running for President (his stupidity will take care of that). However, it is important to hold the Birthers feet to the fire since the very facts of Canada (aka Rafael) Ted’s birth and lineage would – in their myopic worlds – prevent him from running.

"he was Canadian and always will be..."

I'm going to have to let some of my friends know they are actually German or Italian. Since they were born in civilian hospitals in those countries with one U.S. military parent. They received birth certificates from the hospital which were then converted/documented by U.S. officials. In your world, they are still Italian or German though, right?

"The only scrutiny Obama has even been exposed to has only come this week"

Too funny! Nothing like making yourself look uneducated. Now go look up the word "scrutiny" and come back with a knowledgeable response but even before that, dig thru all the past posts of LA and others.

“Really? So all the legal immigrants that have received U.S. citizenship and renounced their home country are still really citizens of their old land?”

I did not say that Canada (aka Rafael) Ted is a Canadian citizen. I said he was Canadian and always will be, based on Canada being his birth nation and his having a Canadian birth certificate. Simply because a person renounces their citizenship will never alter the fact about where they were born.

“How odd...that's not what U.S. law says.”

That’s true, because U.S. law does not address your ridiculous presumption.

"He has withstood the scrutiny that others like Cain and others couldn't withstand."

The only scrutiny Obama has even been exposed to has only come this week, when the MSM has finally reported on his outright lies to the public about Obama Care and his magical, illegal "fixes".

During the elections in 2008 and 2012, there was absolutely no scrutiny about Obama's background by the MSM. The supposed "scrutiny" the other candidates experienced by the MSM was more like being lied about than having their backgrounds scrutinized.

By the way, you can't change the veracity of your phony statements by calling them "the real truth".

"The ACA will work and work well and as more people sing up and begin using the program it will become very popular."

obamacare will not work if young people do not sign up and pay the high premiums needed to pay for providing free healthcare to the parasites. And it does not look they are responding to obama' s desperate pleading.

But why did say "as more people sign up"? The "millions" you claimed were singing up between Oct 1 and Oct 4, when you made that ridiculous statement should be enough to get it started.

By the way, have you found the evidence, the proof, the "source of fact" to back that claim up yet? Or will you finally admit that it was just a lie and you made it all up?

obamacare is not doing as well as you seem to think. To quote the Borg Queen "Watch your future's end." (I love that line)

LOL

“Todays new on obama.”

Thank you for the updates and as always the laughs as you post the usual hyperbolic nonsense based on ….nothing. As usual.

And I am still curious why you are so ecstatic over the problems with the roll-out of the ACA. You thrive on government supported healthcare and yet do not want to see every American have access to healthcare. Why is that?

And of course you forget – or never knew – that the righties of the period whined incessantly that Social Security would not work, nor would Medicare nor would Medicare Part D. And yet here you are living on each one. If they are so terrible why do you take them?

The ACA will work and work well and as more people sing up and begin using the program it will become very popular. And you will continue to complain about something that has not impacted you in anything but a positive manner.

"Obama blew it for future minorities."

He won't be the last. I have to give the man some credit, he stepped out of the box and went against the "Norm" and already knew he had to stand firm against the Righties, the PAN, and the Radical Tea Party knowing the fact he was walking into a poker game with the deck stacked. Despite whither you think he did a good job, bad job, or otherwise, he broke the mold and that's more than most would do. He has withstood the scrutiny that others like Cain and others couldn't withstand. I will standby what I said, he pales in comparison to Bush. Even with Benghazi and everything, he can't possibly do any worse than the thousands of lives Bush will have to take to his grave. He had a failed roll out of a Website, big deal.

Todays new on obama.

1. He actually said after Oct. 1st, 100 million people signed up for obamacare. (On tape)
Actually barack, it was 6 on day one, then about 20,000.

2. Hacker specialists today, under oath, testified obamacare is a disaster, is thrown together, will NEVER be right, appears to already have been hacked repeatedly.

3. Today we learn obama knew last April 2013 that the obamacare website was a disaster. Pretended he never knew til day one. By May 2013, Sebelius also knew. They never told Chao, the guy in charge.

4. We now know, written into obamacare is paying the insurance companies off if they are losing money JUST TO GET OBAMACARE IN. Unbelievable!

5. Today is the 150th anniversary of Lincoln and the Gettysburg Address where obama was assumed to attend. He even likened himself to Lincoln. He didn't show, didn't even send the VP. Reagan went 4000 miles to Normandy on D Day.

6. He chose a fundraiser over the memorial for the first man to step onto the moon. A big deal, he chose the moneyraiser...his priority.

7. He is sinking like a rock. 72% of Americans want obamacare GONE.

One thing that people always seem to forget... U.S. law does not mention dual nationality or require a person to choose one citizenship or another. Basically, you either are or are not a U.S. citizen. Other countries feel differently about it.

Forget Ted Cruz.

The GOP isn’t going to give Cruz an authentic and genuine run at POTUS.

Liberals, Democrats, celebrities, civil rights racists and dullards obsessed with Obama’s race Using race to justify, crucify, worship, argue, debate and center everything about Obama on his race, inherently will always be preoccupied with the “race factor.”

The termination of Obama’s failed Presidency, will be consciously and sub-consciously, connected with his race.

Liberals will believe Obama’s failures were due to his race.

Liberals will blame American racism but will consider Obama the victim of that racism.

Because these people pre-judge people founded on their race, they will discriminate against future minorities, assuming they’re not qualified, but still blaming American racism.

Competence and accepting responsibility aren’t racial traits. The closest Obama came to accepting responsibility was recently when he declared “It’s on us” but predicated his innocence by then saying “I didn’t know or I wouldn’t of...”

People infatuated by and preoccupied by a person’s race, will always use race as a qualifier and a disqualifier.

Obama blew it for future minorities.

Liberals will treat minorities more like children believing they’re not qualified for office, due to American racism and discriminatory damages.

Ironic

“Oh Ya! I could finds a thousand lawyers that say barack obama is a communist NOW! What's your point?”

There are thousands of sad people who claim Obama is not an American citizen. Fools exist in all walks of life. Read the “Trip to Birtherville Blog.”

”…it will be Ted Cruz himself...”

By your own standards – promoted for over five years right here – he is totally ineligible! Why are you turning your back on your standards?

“Always strange that you lefties never mention obama's communist/marxist/islam connections his entire life.”

Well, since overall those claims are all – as frankess likes to say – BS and you spew them constantly, we don’t need to.

You must not forget Canada (aka Rafael) Ted was born in Canada and has a Canadian birth certificate and has a father who was born in Cuba and supported Castro (thereby making him a Communist). Points that you insist make him ineligible to run. And we must never forget that Canada (aka Rafael) Ted cost our nation $24 billion for his foolishness while shoving over a million dollars in his own pocket.

BTW – you will be voting for Chris Christie in 2016.

Why this is nothing more then a communist socialist plot to take over a God fearing Christian nation.To think this kenyan/marxist can step in run this nations values into the ground take away our second amendments rights away from us,force this healthcare law -healthcare is for the privilege and those who can afford it and if you can't afford healthcare then you and your family are in gods hands or what ever God you believe in, government has no business taking my hard earn money and giving it to people who have no work ethics to lazy to go out and find a job but prefer to do drugs and steal and anyone who believes different then this is most likely a victim of a common core education or no education at all,What this great Nation needs is a cleansing of these Liberal subversive Ideology and beliefs in equality and social justice and the best way to accomplish this is to bankrupt all those(including governments) who stand in our way -haven't you learned in the end its money that rules and governs and will continue to rule until the oppress rise up against the ruling class,

"If anyone runs for POTUS, it WON'T be Ted Cruz's 74 year old Father"

DUH! I was referring to your Myth replacement, CC (Communist Cruz).

"I could finds a thousand lawyers that say barack obama is a communist NOW! What's your point?"

"and I could finds a thousand lawyers that say barack Obama isn't a communist NOW! What's your point?

See how that works, just because you say it doesn't make it so! Credibility, I keep telling you. Cruze for CC, just like you did Myth. We see where that got you.

If anyone runs for POTUS, it WON'T be Ted Cruz's 74 year old Father, it will be Ted Cruz himself...who has never been to Cuba and never been a Communist but has been a born again Baptist his entire life. Duh!!

Did you miss the part where Pastor Cruz THE FATHER came here at age 18,graduated from college at age 21.

Always strange that you lefties never mention obama's communist/marxist/islam connections his entire life.

“1. nobody is responsible for what, or who, their father may have been.”

Please tell that to the birthers, sure seems to be important to them.

“2. Ted Cruz is not the U.S. President.”

Thank you for that news bulletin.

“3. Obama is”

And as a nation and thanks to God we are better for it.

So your points were?

“Actually, obama's roots are both communist and from slave traders on both his mother and father's side.”

So what? My parents were both Baptists – doesn’t mean a thing to me, except they were nuts.

”Ted Cruz's Father was never a communist.”

And your source for this is? Look, it’s all very simple Canada (aka Rafael) Ted’s, a Cuban, supported Castro. That means he’s a Communist. You are the one always making wild leaps of logic, so why can’t you follow a simple thread? Daddy Cruz is a Communist.

“…became a born again Christian and a pastor.”

Yeah, so he says. Communist!

“Cruz denounced any dual citizenship with Canada.”

Don’t care, he was born in Canada and has a Canadian birth certificate. Canadian and always will be.

“And specialists have already declared him legal to run for POTUS.”

Never said he couldn’t run for president. I have simply emphasized that he is a Canadian by birth and has a Canadian birth certificate. In your world that makes him ineligible.

“…(needed both parents as Americans per Constitution).”

Still wrong and always will be.

“Doubt much will come of it if he does run.”

Bur you will vote for him!

"Ted Cruz's Father was never a communist."

I'm sure you could find about two dozen lawyers that says he was and two dozen lawyers that say he wasn't. Quickest way to find out is to let CC (Communist Cruz) run for POTUS, that's really when all the truth comes out right LA. I'd venture to say that CC and the righties, tea partiers, and PAN are not willing to take that chance.

aa: Actually, obama's roots are both communist and from slave traders on both his mother and father's side.

Ted Cruz's Father was never a communist. More importantly, the little connection he did have with Castro, he dozens of years ago said he was sorry for, became a born again Christian and a pastor. Call him what you want, God left his slate white as snow. That 's where it really matters.

Cruz denounced any dual citizenship with Canada. It's simply signing the paper, sending $100 with it.

And specialists have already declared him legal to run for POTUS. I personally do not agree (needed both parents as Americans per Constitution) but they have so spoken. Doubt much will come of it if he does run.
