Gary Kreep on presidential eligibility

You may recall Gary Kreep, founder of the United States Justice Foundation and attorney for some of the defendants in the federal lawsuit Keyes/Barnett v Obama. Kreep is credited with first involving Dr. Orly Taitz in Obama eligibility litigation.

In a video Interview with Bill Keller, a TV and Internet evangelist at LivePrayer.com, Kreep explains the constitutional requirements for the US presidency:

The constitutional requirements to serve as president are very simple. You have to be 35 years old, you have to have resided in the United States for 14 years and you have to be quote natural born citizen unquote, which is the issue we’re dealing with regarding Mr. Obama.

There’s been a few Supreme Court decisions that discuss this matter, but basically what it means it’s that either you have to be born in the United States, which Mr. Obama claims he was or if you were born in a foreign country one of your parents had to have been a United States citizen and the parent needed to have been a resident of the United States for at least 10 years, at least 5 years of which were after age 14.

Kreep Interview starts 5 minutes in

Thanks, Gary, for clearing that up for my readers.

    Gary Kreep’s infomercials are produced and hosted by Bill Keller, a fundamentalist minister who was imprisoned in the late ’80s for an insider trading conviction.

    In the past, Kreep has associated with Holocaust deniers. Their links have since been removed from his website.

    Small consolation.

    Kreep currently represents two of Barnett v. Obama plaintiffs for the appeal pending in the 9th Circuit. Kreep also represents Keyes for the pending appeal of Keyes v. Bowen in the California Court of Appeal.

    Some more daily humor from the Post and Fail. A so called letter to the Sec of the Army. Interesting.

    “Mr. Dasey, you tell me how Barack Obama, the putative president and so-called “Commander-in-Chief,” was able to legally and ethically secure the resignation of a four-star general and American hero, Stanley McChrystal! Obama has no legal or moral authority to do any such thing! Barack Obama (assuming that’s his real name) is not, as our Constitution defines it and requires, a “natural born citizen”! I don’t care if he looks “black” (he’s mostly Arabic in ethnicity, and he has admitted to being a Muslim as opposed to Christian).

    I don’t care if the people elected him “President,” as it was by fraud. He never possessed the qualifications to run for office in the first place, yet he lied and claimed that he did. That alone makes him guilty of high crimes, including treason. I don’t care if the man is charismatic; so were Adolf Hitler and Jim Jones! I don’t care if there’s a conspiracy of “heavyweights” like George Soros, Rupert Murdoch, Michael Moore, the Clintons, John McCain and Sarah Palin, O’Reilly, Beck and others to keep him in office. I don’t care if he has numerous social security numbers while most of us ordinary folks are restricted to having only one. I don’t care if he, Obama, knows who I am, because I am just an ordinary everyday American citizen.

    Are you, Mr. Dasey and the U.S. Army, going to proceed full speed ahead with the court martial of another American hero and true patriot, Lt. Col. Terry Lakin? Shame on you! Yo will be on the “wrong side” of history in the annals of the United States of America! But, you know what, I don’t think you give a damn!”

    The funniest part is the letter is signed by “Tom Arnold”? I guess the acting and comedy thing didn’t work out…lol. Just kidding. But the birthers are just so enveloped in their intense dislike of the President that they will use anything to try and attack him.

    Of course the humor is in the comments….

    By the way fellow American patriots, I started a new page http://einhornpress.com/IllegalAlienorCommanderinChief.aspx on my Web site, am trying to keep it short, and am leaving it open-ended to see what happens in the Lt. Col. Lakin court-martial, if it even comes to pass, since I think the military has no authority to convene it until Obama’s valid credentials to act as Commander-in-Chief can be firmly established. There’s enough info on the illegal alien sitting in the Oval Office to be found elsewhere on my site anyway. I share my sentiments with Tom Arnold’s attitude in his letter in this Post & Email editorial completely. Thanks for speaking up friend!

    Check out http://www.prisonplanet.com/obama-fires-mcchrystal-selects-petraeus-to-oversee-opium-fields-in-afghanistan.html sometime. Do you think maybe McChrystal is positioning himself to lead the upcoming revolt against the wealthy Usurper? I hear now the chain-smoking hypocrite is going to ban smoking on submarines in December. I guess the liar’s 62-cent-tax per pack of cigarettes on those making under $250,000 to pay for free illegal alien children health care was not enough to get these men who spend three months under water to quit. I understand that forty per cent of the military smokes. Wow, that Muslim mulatto is begging for a revolt. We may soon have a military made up mostly of smokeless queers and floating brothels. You know what the soldiers will be doing when we need them. Obama and his rogue government are doing a diabolical job of destroying America before our eyes in a very short time, and most Americans sit around gulping down fat food in front of their TV’s and computer games, where they “see no evil, hear no evil, and speak no evil!”

    Our so called “Private Attorney General”…The birthers..either they hang on to former military titles or they invent ones….Amazing…

    I think LTC Terry Lakin should immediately seek out General McChrystal, explain his situation and asK for McChrystal’s help. Lakin, along with ValleLy and McChrystal at his side will get the discovery into the truth about Obama.

    LTC Terry Lakin, seek out General McChrystal!

    Of course our delusional buddy James. Still believing that the Lakin court martial will be the OMG moment to bring down the “muslim usurper”….

    I think Mr. Arnold should (as well as others) start asking the bigger question of who has the ability to enact a coup de etat upon over 300 million American citizens including all elected officials whether democrat or republican and the Main Stream Media! The ILLEGAL USURPER Obama is just part of the much bigger problem that’s unwarranted and was unjustifiably put upon the American people. Folks! This is big! This is huge! This cannot be ignored and absolutely must be somehow and someway brought forth to the forefront as the most single topic of discussion in America! The current entire crop of government officials and apparently all of the MSM think of you and me as FOOLS! We have no Constitutional Law in America right now! The Constitution with this ongoing act of treason perpetrated by our present corrupt federal, state and local governments has been abolished without the permission of WE THE PEOPLE! Folks! There is something terribly wrong taking place in America right now this very moment and the government and the MSM are complicit in this wrong doing! The America People must rise up and find out who, what and why this CRIME of TREASON is being imposed upon them!

    And of course the usual sedition advocated by the Post and Fail….

And suddenly he is American born? When his Mom divorced Obama Senior, and married lolo Soetoro who adopted him, his name became Soetoro. Did he legally change it? Don’t let the truth frighten you. You were lied to, now what?

    Oh Marge/Sven/John

    Herein lies YOUR problem, the only eductayion you have plainly taken is by supping at the poisened chalice that is WND and the Pest and Fail.

    Obama was never Kenyan, he was born in Hawai’i and there is ample proof and validation, sufficient to stand up in any court in the USA.

    Obama was never adopted etc and so is and never was Soetoro

    Ameican citizenship is not so fragile that your mother marrying a furriner can take it away. It’s yours for ever unless you formally renounce in a very well documneted and recorded manner and NEVER by a child.

    You have been lied too, I would suggest you lie down and avoid the racist muppets that inhabit Birferverse.

    Ignorance is a prerequesite of being a birther. As we have pointed out over the last couple of days it seems like the birthers, who have grown tired of their echo chamber of moderated blogs like the Post and Fail, WND, Citizen Wells, and Apuzzo are attempting to use their disinformation on the educated posters here. This is why we see known birthers like ramjet and oldsalt coming over to Dr. C’s to try and convert some more individuals to birtherism. They post and then run, knowing that they cannot defend their ridiculous statements. Why the ignorance indeed. It makes you want to scream “Birther, educate thyself”….

    He never was kenyan born. There is no proof he was ever adopted. One doesn’t lose their US citizenship unless they take steps to renounce it and they can’t do it as a mere child. There is no suddenly being American born he was american born. The truth frightens you that’s why you stick to moderated blogs with the same echo chamber statements.

    And let’s not forget the ultra-unhinged man-hating, Orly worshiping PUMA birther “Squeeky Fromme” aka “Jennifer4Hillary”.

    We have had quite a few of the prominent birther crowd come here & then eventually throw a tantrum and run off with their tail between their legs – notably Mario and BZ (butterdezillion) and several others. We’ve also had to deal with previous infestations of the AXJ nuttery in the past as well.

    So many of the other ones that have come & gone are hard to sort out, as they all spout the same tired garbage over and over and over again…and its hard to tell which are just sock-puppets for someone else. Some have even gotten so out of hand vitriolic in their tantrums at constantly losing the battle here that Dr. C’s had to ban them, but that has been a fairly rare occurrence to my understanding.

    I don’t recall what happened to Heavy after he disappeared from here – he was quite prominent for awhile, but that was a long time ago.

    LOL! Yeah, I know. The worst part is, she quite clearly intentionally chose that name for exactly that reason. “Squeeky” is very severely unhinged and therefore has a sick hero-worship fetish for similarly deranged women. That alone shows how off her judgment is.

    Of all the crazy birther posters out there, she is by far one of the most mentally unstable I’ve encountered. Based on her over-the-top seething rants over the past two years, I fully expect to see her eventually end up as a tragic news story in some bizarre psychotic episode. She’s about as close to a ticking time-bomb as they get.

    Unhinged individuals that have been overcome with their hatred of the President. That group, that have always been there, have come to the forefront. The fact that this President is “so different” than the other 43 drives them nuts. Some individuals cannot fathom that the demographics of the US have changed and want a return to the “old days”…Like Rand Paul who wants to overturn the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Or when Trent Lott publically wished that Strom Thurmond and his Dixiecrats had won election in the 50’s. Obama has given this element a focal point for their inherent hatred. WND, the Post and Fail,. and the other sites are just outlets. These people hate the President enough to advocate sedition. And that is the most depressing part of all…

    Thank you for providing the link about Squeeky. I first encountered her strange posts on the OC Weekly website and thought she was having one over on everyone. I just could not believe that she was serious. Now I learn that she actually means what she says. I’m stunned. The internet, for all its power to enlighten, has given a monstrously powerful voice to the worst aspects of American culture. What is going to happen to our country? To hell with the World Wide Web and building a bridge to the 21st century; we need a path back to the Age of Reason.
